This, however, has some turbulent consequences, because Ben does not really get along with the new responsible situation because of his naivety...
The new comedy from the team of "The 40 Year Old Virgin" is nothing special, unfortunately, but definitely suitable for an entertaining DVD evening. The unrated version, however, is surely not worth being called so. Some not very funny conversations were put back in which could have been disclaimed easily. The normal version is more than enough.

At the boys' round table, the following conversationabout their homepage has been added. One of them says that in the movie "Short Cuts", Julianne "Redbeard" Moore's "bush" is visible. Ben makes a few insinuating jokes about that. Beyond others, some about the movie "Shining".
Short explanation. Ben refers to the word "Redbeard" (Julianne Moore has red hair). The little boy in "Shining" always talks to his imaginary friend Tony and repeats the word "Redrum" (reverse of "Murder"). Ben imitates the little boy in this scene, repeating the word "Redbush".

Jonah asks Jay, why he has a tattoo of the Canadian maple leaf on his chest. Jay takes this very personal and says that this has been a patriotic act for his country.
Shortly after that, Ben leaves the room.
Everybody is sitting together at the breakfast table. Debbie's little daughter asks if Ben and Alison love each other. Debbie answers immediately that they, of course, do love each other. Because if they did not, Alison would not be pregnant. Then you love each other and, surely, get married soon and have a baby.
After the ping pong match, another scene has been added in the unrated cut.
Ben and Alison are sitting in the car. She asks for a chewing gum and looks into the glove compartment. She finds a little box with papers and marihuana. Ben says that he has been looking for that. Then they talk about how it would be if they had a threesome with one of Ben's friends and who they would pick. After a short consideration, she chooses Jay. Alison likes his skinny body and his haircut, what Ben cannot really understand.
When Alison goes into the labor and calls Ben. In the theatrical version, we only see him picking up the phone and saying "Hello?". After that, he is immediately sitting in his car on his way to her. In the unrated version, the whole conversation on the phone is being shown.
Alison says that the baby is coming and that he is supposed to come to her immediately. During the conversation she gets a contraction and Ben shows her on the phone how she has to breath. She tells him that she cannot reach her gynecologist and that he has to help her. Ben is additionally getting dressed, but tells her that he has to get gas because his car is almost empty. She yells at him that she does not care at all and that he is supposed to come to her right now. Then she hangs up.
