Comparison between the theatrical version and the unrated version, both represented through the RC1-DVD’s by 20th Century Fox.


The movie


Tom Brady who has also been responsible for the 2002 Rob Schneider film „The Hot Chick“ was set to follow the many pointless toilet humor parodies like „Date/Epic Movie“ or „Meet The Spartans“ and make big bucks with his spoof of the sportmovie genre. This time the plan did not work out, the movie bombed at the box-office.

A few laughs may be included in Brady’s story about loser-coach Lambeau Fields (David Koechner) who’s supposed to lead a group of mixed college kids to victory on the football field but the comedy is not better than mediocre.

The extended version


...really delivers the goods. As the running time difference of almost 20 minutes implies the parallel to the theatrical version released „unrated“ DVD introduces a lot of new material. This also includes much of more or rather less sensible alternate material which turned the comparison into a challenging task. Some changes may have been made due to the PG-13 rating but there are also a lot of different sequences and recuts which simply give the impression of a Director’s Cut or an entire alternate cut. By the way, director Brady only recorded a commentary track for the unrated version.

Anyway, the two versions differ heavily. Which version is to be prefered can’t be said universally. On the one hand there are many scenes which had to be trimmed for the PG-13 rating, as well as the one or other joke which makes the unrated version interesting. On the other hand this version sometimes just is overlong. One gets the feeling to watch a dull string of different parody attempts.
Time specifications refer to the US-DVD of the theatrical cut (in NTSC)

First of all it needs to be said that the unrated version offers more off-screen comments after the sentence listed in the cut above – it's about the job of the coach.
"It was about helping out Mother Nature. To draw forth the building blocks of the champion D.N.A. Which- Aw, hell. He was yanking off horses."
The unrated version shows the Coach doing this job from a little more distance thus we see more of his hand motions on the animal. The conversation between Fields and Freddie Wiseman (Carl Weathers) continues identical but the shots are different.


PG-13

- The shot that shows Fields from the back is a little longer
- A short close-up of Fields
- Freddie talks in close-up about college but seems a little irritated by the work of his conversational partner

Prior to the hearing of (Coach Fields' daughter) the unrated version has a little joke as well as a special transition to the trial – the new shot "slides" into frame from the left and covers the shot of Fields' wife.
Fields then puts his arm around the punk girl in the court room and says: "Don't worry, sweetie. We're gonna get through this."
His wife says: "Honey, that's not Michelle."
Surprised he pulls his arm back. His wife points to the front.

The judge is on the phone on her patio in a both robe, smoking: "Hey, Tommy B. Yeah, Lawdog here. Listen, I wanna put 50 grand on the US womens gymnastic team to win the gold in Beijing. Thanks, buddy."

After the bird's eye view of the football field the speech of the coach has been extended. In the theatrical version the next shot starts a bit earlier whereas the beginning of the sentence spoken in that shot is presented in a different take in the unrated version.

Prior to that the unrated shows the following:
Shot of the coach: "Hope you're ready for the worst six weeks of your life. I'm gonna do things to your bodies that are cruel, painful and unnatural."
While speaking the last three words we see three of the tough looking team players. Then we cut back to the coach in a different shot: "I'm gonna ride your ass day and night."
A shot of the players: "I'm gonna make you bleed from places that you've never bled from before."
Back to the coach: "It's gonna hurt bad. It's gonna hurt deep."
Shot of two tough guys: "Then it's gonna start to feel good." They nod.
The coach off screen, the look on the player's faces change: "Then it's gonna hurt again."
Coach Fields pauses briefly and then speaks the sentence that comes at the beginning of the following shot in the theatrical cut: "Now, I need to get this team down to a 32-Man roster"

One girl gives the guys the finger.

This shot continues in the unrated version. Randy tries to talk the coach into bringing him along.
"Oh, come on Coach. I'll give you a rim job. I work down at the car wash on the weekends. I'll have your wheels sparkling in no time."
As this goes on there are intercuts to Aseel and Buddy and then back to coach Fields and Randy who demonstrates everything with a sponge.
Coach Fields: "Car wash. Right. Sometimes I think I might have a dirty mind."

16,6 sec




26:30

First of all coach Fields is seen a few frames longer in the unrated cut. Then the others pick on him for the first time.
"But if you think you can try using unconventional training methods and crazy game plans..."
The left guy shakes his head and coach Fileds looks at them, intimidated. Another guy shakes his head while looking morose at the coach.
Then the two guys from the beginning burst into laughter: "We support that 100 percent!"
The others join in and the hard-to-understand guy says: "we're right behind you!" Then there's a shot of the relieved coach.
16,8 sec




27:05

The wishing luck appears off screen while a shot of coach Fields is seen in the theatrical cut. In the unrated it’s on screen and the shot of the guys is longer.

A little laughter before one of the guys offers Fields coffee. He takes it skeptically.
As the coffee is poured the sheriff (with the hat) says "I'd be honored if you held my gun" and hands Fields his weapon.
The others encourage him. As Fields gets easier with the gun the others step back and say: "Heh, Hey, shooter!"
One of them says "Use that to stir it" and as Fields will lay down the gun he gets pushed down by the sheriff.

24 sec




Alternate material
27:07-27:08

PG-13
Coach Fields is seen about one second longer.


Unrated
Most important to mention is the off-screen comment which is audible from the beginning of the shot and which is completely missing in the theatrical cut.
"And Coach heard their message loud and clear. You see this was a town that loved its football. A brisk Saturday in autumn was like a holiday for these folks. The whole town shut down on game day. Everyone in Heartland, and I mean everyone, was at the game."
This is accompanied with shots of the deserted landscape.The "Welcome to Heartland State Unversity"-sign at the end is longer seen due to the still enduring off-screen comment.


Unrated is 12,7 sec longer



Alternate material
27:50-27:51

After "They're rock-Hard on offense!" the shot continues in the unrated version. Fields says something else, something more juicy. The theatrical version cuts to Buddy and Jasminder and then continues with a later sentence from that shot.
The words "They've got a stiff defense! They'll exploit any opening they see." are missing. Fields makes a fitting gesture with his fist.

Prior to Fields talking to Aseel the unrated version shows how Fields meets his daughter with her new boyfriend Trotter.

The guys on the bench applaud and yell: "Here comes Trotter!"
Trotter walks up the them very calmly. Fields beefs: "You missed the whole first quarter. Where have you been?"
Trotter: "Get off my back, Coach. I was doing a thing."
Fields‘ daughter appears from behind Trotter and explains: "Me. And remember, Dad, he's black. Black as a Mississippi August night."
Coach Fields: "All right, Trotter. You're on the bench for the rest of the game. If you're ever late again, you're off my squad."
Trotter: "Whatever, Coach. I'm all you got and you know it."
In the meantime Michelle pours water into his golden goblet and hands it to him.
As a transition to Aseel’s appearance Fields says: "I think you're forgetting about someone. The future of this team. And his name is ACL Tear."
(The last words are audible as the following shots of Aseel appear – however the theatrical version introduces Aseel at the end of the prior shot with the words "ACL Tear, I need you out there now!" ein.)

Fields: "Please tell me you're a confectioner's assistant."
Randy, grinning: "Oh, no. I really meant I was gonna pack your fudge and toss your salad."
Fields surpressed the urge to throw up and continues talking to the rest: "All right, listen. I want you all to go out and celebrate. Tear it up. Explore your bodies. Lather up your nethers, get 'em wet, sticky. Shave it. Go out and get yourself a venereal disease, whatever it is you kids are into these days."
Three of the players look puzzled.
Fields: "All right, get in here. S.T.D.'s on three. One, two, three."
Alle stimmen in der Mitte stehend ein: "S.T.D.'s!"

Different shot of Michelle at the desk. She takes something out of the drawer.
Lance: "What's that?"
Michelle: "I'm writing my local congressman because I'm worried about the rapidly decaying future of Social Security."
Lance: "During a party? Why?"
Michelle: "Because everyone's labeled me rebellious, so I'm rebelling against the rebellious label by being conscientious in rebellion. Duh."

After "some wine" we cut to the grinning Lance and we hear Michelle say: "We'd lay out on a blanket and do it. And do it, and do it, and do it and do it."
Lance sadly bites his lip and the following shot of Michelle starts a little earlier in the theatrical cut. We already see her saying the words "We'd do it every day".


Unrated

The shot continues and Michelle says: "We'd lay out on a blanket and ball. And ball, ball, ball, ball, ball."
During the last "ball" we see the confused Lance from a different perspective.
Michelle again: "We'd do it over and over for hours and hours. And I would ride you so hard you wouldn't be able to walk for weeks."
Lance shakes his head sadly and we hear Michelle say "We'd do it every day".

Fields yells at the players because the study in the room next to the party (reading Shakespeare etc. for their exams).

Fields: "You all signed a contract. What are you trying to do? Ruin your season before it even begins, huh?"
Jasminder: "No, Coach. We're simply trying to keep up our G.P.A.S."
Fields: "Oh, is that what you call it? Mm-Hmm. You make me sick, all of you."
There’s a shot of sad IPod and Buddy

"But, apparently, I'm gonna have to take you by the friggin' hand. You won a football game!"
While this is going on we shortly cut to Lance and Jasminder. Other than in the theatrical cut they only look straight ahead.

After Fields emptied the can we briefly cut to Buddy and Jorge in the theatrical version. The Unmrated presents only one steady shot. Then there’s a much more explicit "Party/Drugs"-excess of Fields.


PG-13

After the shot of Randy and Jorgewe see Fields taking a little bottle of the woman on the right and opening it; "You should be popping some pills!"
Short shot of the appalled IPod and Buddy.


Unrated

The shot continues but Fields, while taking the little bottle, says "You should be popping ecstasy, man!"
After he took the pills he washes them down with some beer
He takes a spraypaint can, sprays into a brown bag and inhales from it; "Oh, yeah, and huffin' some paint! What's the color? Good times."
Intercut on the shocked guys before Fields gestures wildly.
Now he says: "Look at me now, man. Yeah, I brought all these illegal drugs to the party...in my fake Louis Vuitton bag that's chock-full of pirated DVDs I got down in Chinatown" and he throws them aat the players. The italic part appears laater in the hteatrical cut as well.
He shouts around: "Who cares, man? I'm just having some fun, because I won a football game. Yeah! I'm a huge drug-pushing drug guy."

In the theatrical cut we only saw shortly how Fileds took a hit from the bong. After that it’s getting a little complicated – in the unrated version some material has been rearranged.


PG-13

Shot of Lance and Jasminder (with bong-hitting sounds of screen) and Fields‘ appearance from "Look at me now, man!" to "...full of pirated DVDs" where he throws the pirated copies into the crowd.The last phrase about Chinatown isn’t audible anymore. Instead we see Buddy and IPod and cops entering.
After that Fields takes off his shirt, another intercut on Buddy closing his eyes. Then he starts struggling with his pants. Again we see the cops watching this (it’s the only shot thaat is not included in different order in the unrated version so the only image comes from that shot).
The coach says the same things like in the recut unrated version: "Now I'm crazy wasted with a bunch of minors and I'm taking off all my clothes. Yeah, it's cool, man. I'm a football player. That's what we do!"


Unrated

In the unrated Fields hits the bong longer and passes it to the right out of frame; "Gotta have some more of that."
He takes a small pipe from the left and looks more wasted by the second; "That's the right spot. Now I'm crazy wasted with a bunch of minors and I'm taking off all my clothes."
He does so but (opposed to the theatrical cut) before the cops enter. Intercut on the embarrassed IPod and Buddy (the second shot of them from the theatrical cut).
"Yeah, it's cool, man. I'm a football player. That's what we do!"


As Fields realizes "It's the cops" both versions continue the same way.

After the exterior shot of the prison a long scene is missing in the theatrical version. The homosexual theme in prison is parodied and Dennis Rodman makes a cameo appearance (which is party occurring in the theatrical version as well).

We see Fields huddling up to the bars hearing pouncing from behind. He’s muttering words like "Come on! You can do it!"
In a closer shot we see that he and his cellmate are only trying to open the drawer of a small cabinet.
Fields: "I'm sorry, Clint. I couldn't get it unstuck either."
Clint: "Well, thanks for trying. I should just ask for another one, but that piece goes so well with the room."
Fields agrees muttering, then we see a couch on the other end with a garden magazine on it.
Fields: "It does coordinate nicely with those throw pillows."
Flint looks at him a moment and says: "Wanna have sex again?"
Fields, friendly: "No, I'm good."
Cell door opens and Fields looks at three men standing in the dark: "Who are you?"
The one in the middle says: "I'm the warden. You can go free if you beat me in hoops... One on one."
Close-up of Fields, he self-confidently says: "Hoops? Me likey."
Then there's a shot of the men in the dark from more distance. Fields says: "I feel I should warn you. I was the leading scorer of the Jewish community center Bitty-Boy's Basketball League three years straight."
The middle one comes out of the dark and we see it's Dennis Rodman.
Fields: "Well, I think I'm gonna spare you the humiliation and just wait to be bailed out."
He catches his breath as the gate closes. As he turns around Clint's smiling at him and tries again: "Are you sure you don't want to cuddle?"

In the theatrical cut a part of the scenes from the prior cut is rearranged here. In the unrated version Fields messes with the wardens.

Freddie gets up laughing and leaves the frame to the right. This is a transisition to Fields behind bars.
Then there's instantly following Clint who wants to cuddle (fort his see the last two images from the prior cut).
Following this the cell door opens and Rodman makes the offer. However it ends with Fields saying "Me likey" and Rodman doesn't Stepp into the light.

Freddie breaks the fourth wall with his off-screen comment voice: "Freddie decided it was time to go. As for Coach, he had bigger things to worry about."
Shot from an upper angle with other prisoners being in the frame: "Why, just this morning, he banged the wife of the guy sitting next to him."
This guy looks madly at coach Fields and as Freddie gets out of there Fields tries to defend himself: "Come on, Turbo. That's impossible. I'm in here with you."
But Turbo pushes him against the wall. Freddie laughs.
As he takes some strange positions in the fight with Turbo Fields says: "Send a message to the warden. I'll take him up on his little offer. Your interpersonal skills are horrible and you're a terrible gossip. Everybody knows that. People talk about you. You cheat at checkers. Oh, why resist it?"

After the first rebound the unrated cut shows more exaggerated action of Fields.

Fields tries to teach Rodman: "It's called skills, junior. And I guess I got some. Whoa."
We see his legs and he does some tricks. He shows the shoulder trick. Then he goes in circles, supporting himself with one hand. Rodman looks confused as Fields gets of the ground, performs various somersaults and finishes with a slam dunk.
After another fireball effect Rodman says: "Change of rules. Even if you win, you're still gonna stay here."

Prior to coach Fields wife on the bed there's someting else on television. The scene from the theatrical cut is reintegrated later (at the hairdresser's).


PG-13

The newscaster says (while a picture of Fields is shown in the background):
"Big story developing out of Plainfolk, Texas. Heartland State head coach Lambeau Fields is taking an unusual stance against academic excellence. He has locked his team out of practice all week and now the squad is in danger of forfeiting the upcoming conference championship at the toilet bowl."
During this report the camera pulls out and reveals the TV standing on a chest of drawers.



Unrated

A different newscast (the comment starts in the last two seconds of the prior shot):
"We all remember that touching story of the autistic high school boy who was finally given his chance to play. This amazing story has inspired people from all different walks of life."
We see the boy doing some tricks. Then we cut to a surgery, comment: "Last night, at Cleveland General Hospital, Dr. Edmund Grand allowed Billy, a longtime orderly, a chance at his dream."
The obviously not totally healthy guy is on screen.
Another caster on the small TV: "Touching story out of Cleveland. Time of death- 8:05."

Long cut. First the newscast from the theatrical version (two cuts above) appears but with a different picture of Fields in the background and on the TV at the hairdresser's of the villagers. Fields enters and talks with them about the separation from his wife. He finds out that all the other guys made sure their wives won't leave them…in a rather radical fashion. Then we see Lance picking the team up with a truck and they drive off to follow the coach's instructions (partying hard etc.).

Fields enters after an exterior shot and a shot of the TV. Everyone looks skeptical.
He sits down while one of them sharpens the knife; "You sure got to have some big clankers to come in here."
Fields: "Go ahead. Do your worst. My wife left me."
The man next to him pokes him sympathetically; "Aw, hell."
Fields: "It's my fault. I forgot she was there. Boys, if you find that perfect gal that has all the little things, and, yet, she's willing to enhance them surgically into bigger things. And she doesn't mind showing them to your friends at a New Year's Eve party, that's a gal."
Agreement from different sides. The sheriff says: "Well, don't take it so hard, poon cheeks. We've all walking in on a loved one getting barn-doored by a half rack of bird doggers."


The guy next to Fields: "Hell, I remember when my Dorothy left me, and I did everything I could to get her back. And when I did, I made sure that she'd never leave me again."
Fields: "How'd you do that?"
Guy: "I treated her like a queen - like an Egyptian queen. Mummified and entombed her in the basement. Her shrieks of help like music to my ears."
Hairdresser: "It's all about communication, fellas. My Jeanie, she used to wag her finger in front of my face and bug the bejesus out of me. But, well, we sat down and when we discussed it in a mature manner and-And-And now sh-She'll never, never wave this finger in front of me again."
He holds up the separated finger of his wife.
The guy with the slight speech disorder starts to talk and walks up to the man whose hair is getting dressed; "Hey, you know what? I'm gonna tell you something. It's about compromise. Now take Salamander here. Now we get up in each other's rifle racks now and again. But then we make up and talk about it. We bangity-boo. Sticky man love, you know what I'm saying, Coach?"
The italic part also appears as subtitles.
Fields thanks them: "Solid advice, fellas. You're good people."

The frustrated team stands in front of the still locked gate
Lance arrives with a pick up truck and says: "It's time to do something we should have done long ago. Get in the back."
The team starts to move cheering. We see Randy huddling underneath Buddy on the back; "I think we're gonna need a bigger truck."

In the thatrical cut the fire/football transition appears in Fields' apartment.

The unrated version shows how Fields enters the empty training room and then finds his team in a club partying wildly (which equals his instructions, therefore he compliments them all).

Fields takes out the pipe and asks: "What the hell is going on here?"
Lance approaches him and proudly reports as wee cut to the people he mentions: "Hey, Coach. Buddy Boy smashed a whole 12-Pack over his forehead. I Pod's doing body shots out of his belly button. And Jorge, he's been dancing like this for the past six hours. And Jasminder, she made 300 bucks. And I think that Randy lost his cherry to Gwen Stefani over there."
Buddy passes the contracts: "And our signed contracts."
Fields is overwhelmed: "I have never been so proud of a team in my entire life."
The whole team says together: "Who do you play for? Comebacks!", then the fire/football transition occurs.

After identical shots of the scoreboard the theatrical cut continues with Randy. The unrated version presents another failed attempt of Aseel Tare.

Fields looks around and Aseel enters: "Hey, Coach! Suppose I can get in the game?"
Randy: "Hey, guys, look who's back."
Aseel: "I'm a quick healer."
Fields: "Hey, gang. The cavalry's arrived. And he goes by the name of..."
Everyone shuts him up and yell his real name, Fields then babbles "Okay, I got it. ACL Tear, get out there. Let's go".
The team approaches the field, only Randy is being held back in the last moment again.
Now Aseel sprints to the front while more and more opponent players tail him. He makes the touchdown but the comment "He's got the entire defense on his back" pretty much nails it.
After a shot of disappointed Freddie we see that Aseel has been torn in two in the heat of the moment. The ref takes the ball out of the his upper part.
We briefly see the shocked crowd as well as Fields and IPod. Then his lower part falls over.
Assel says "No worries! I'm a quick healer, whoo!" and cheers.
Fields seems to be relieved and the sportscaster says in different roles: "John, what we're seeing here is a definite shift in momentum. I mean, we-we really are, Al. I mean, y-You take a look at what's happening And they were down by a lot And now they're not down by as much And-And pretty soon they could erase this deficit."
