Unrated Extended Cut
This is a comparison between the PG-13-DVD and the Unrated Extended Cut.
From the prudish USA come 7 additional minutes of "never-before-seen scenes regarding adult context". However, this is the official product description of the US-DVD - or how to turn a PG-13-Rated movie into an R-Rated-movie.
Runtime Unrated Special Edition 1:47:24 Min. with end credits

John Goodman (as s Bill Sanford) has a telephone conversation with his daughter Violet. She just gets dressed. In the theatrical version he first asks her about the bar where she works. She answers he shouldn´t worry and wants to know what he is eating. He admits ironically that he is eating fast food.
Then he asks her how she gets ahead with her songwriting. Thats when she remembers that Adam Garcia (as Kevin O´Donnell) still has her demo tape.
Alternative shot 31:21 Min.
In the Unrated Special Edition Bill first talks about missing Violet and afterwards they talk about dinner and songwriting. Therefor different shot are shown. As Violet changes her clothes during the telephone conversation, she first takes off her shoes and then her jeans skirt. She briefly interrupts the conversation to get into her jeans which is somewhat difficult because they are very tight.
Cammie consults Violet on their shopping spree! Cammie holds a dress in front of her, looking into a mirror. Violet put on a tight leather dress. They both are standing in front of a mirror and confer.
A montage follows, showing Cammie and Violet trying different clothes.
Still we see the montage in the clothes shop.

Alternative shot 57:27 Min.
This time a shorter montage. Violet sings her song.
In the Unrated Special Edition another montage follows. In the background we hear Violet singing.
The song in the montage ends and we find ourselves on a baseball field! From some of the following scenes the montage for the theatrical version was assembled.
Violet and Cammie sit on the bench and watch. It´s Rachel´s turn to be go to the home plate. Lili gives her instructions by show of hands how to strike. Jack McGee (as Earl) throws the ball, Rachel hits it and starts to run but doesn´t get far because the balls gets caught. Now it´s Cammie´s turn and she gets ready.
Earl suggests something which Lili refuses. Now Cammie distracts Earl by making him nervous. Cut, and Lili has won.
An additional shot gives Rachel more time to get her T-shirt wet.
Zoe also gets more time to get her shirt wet. They are all at it. Zoe pours a pitcher of water over Rachel´s blouse.
Some female customers are dancing on top of the counter.
