Comparison between the censored R-Rated version and the uncensored Unrated version (both distributed by 20th Century Fox).
Over a short period of time Troy Duffy's gangster film gained a cult following after its release on home video. Until 2006 there was only an R-rated version available in the USA. Then the unrated version found its way on DVD. In the UK only the R-rated version has been released.
R-Rated version: 108:13 Min.
Unrated version: 108:18 Min.
