Comparison:

  • R-Rated
  • German DVD
Release: Mar 28, 2009 - Author: HuZim MayXX - Translator: HuZim MayXX - external link: IMDB
R-Rated: 100 minutes (1:40:22 with Credits | 1:32:41 without Credits)
GER-DVD: 102 minutes (1:42:28 with Credits | 1:35:05 without Credits)

This is a comparison between the cut R-Rated DVD with the uncut German DVD (FSK 16).

There are a total of 49 cuts in the R-Rated version (and in the Unrated as well). Not only sexual innuendos have been cut, but also some of the funnier (more or less) scenes. Especially the scenes that are making fun of the Taliban have been cut for mostly unknown reasons. There were also some pacing cuts, especially inside the "godshelter" when The Postal Dude is locked away.

The missing scenes run for about 386 seconds (6 minutes and 26 seconds), even though the German Version is only 2 minutes longer than the R-Rated Version. This is due to the PAL-SpeedUp that was made for the German DVD.

Additional info:
Dialog missing from the R-Rated DVD has been marked italic.
Timemarks refer to the R-Rated DVD (the timemarks in brackets refer to the German DVD)
As the R-Rated and Unrated Version are identical except for the creditroll, where the Unrated Version inserts Deleted Scenes, this comparison works for the Unrated Version as well.

The R-Rated DVD is missing a scene where the gang talks about the insider, that will smuggle them inside Little Germany. Here we find out, that it was D.O.O.M. who sabotaged Verne Troyer's transport.

Dude: Are you sure that your "insider" will be able to get us inside?
(Richard takes Dude's pointing stick)
Richard: He is both a high-ranking parking lot manager and a loyal member to the flock. Now, I noticed there's a lot of security between the drawbridge and the store room. Now how do we get through unnoticed?
Dude: With a distraction.
(Dude takes his pointing stick back)
Dave: We're gonna fuck with the international superstar's transportation. By time he gets here, he'll be royally pissed, man. And you know how people jump when a VIP is pissed off.

Richard: You are a blessing upon us, my brother.

The Taliban run to their van and Osama is allowed - by international "Shotgun-"law - to sit on the front seat next to Mohammed.
Cut to the "heroes": Everyone is running in step out of the building while Dude is constantly yelling "Go! Go! Go! ..." you get the point...
Cut to the Taliban: Osama helps one of the Taliban in a very friendly way into the van, always yelling "Go!" just like Dude. He gets to sit on the front seat right next to Mohammed and tells him to "Go!".
Cut to the "heroes": Dave is sleeping on the couch, Dude comes back and wakes him in a way everyone would love to be woken up. He also mentions in a very subtle way, that Dave should come with them too.

Bobeck: How about you, Mohammed? You are so worthy.
(the other Taliban seem to agree in the background)

Alternatee Sequence
01:17:43 (01:19:49)

The Baby-Run-Over has been changed from its original German Version.

While he is not looking on the street, the baby-carriage gets on the street and left by its owner, leaving the baby behind to get run over by our hero.. main-protagonists. The latter are asking themselves what the hell that was before it gets cut to Bitch.

In the German Version Dude and Faith are looking at the street while running over the baby in the stroller. They don't seem to mind this. Faith asks Dude where they're going. Dude answers "Somewhere were you wouldn't notice a giant explosion." before it gets cut to Bitch.
