Comparison:

  • Theatrical version
  • Workprint
Release: Jun 03, 2008 - Author: Doc Idaho - Translator: klepp - external link: IMDB
Workprint: 80:50 minutes (NTSC, without end credits)
Theatrical version: 76:20 minutes (PAL, without end credits)

There are 59 changes between the two versions. The Theatrical version probably has 4 cuts for censorship. Besides that each version has a few longer plot-scenes, missing in the other version. Additionally the Final Cut eliminates smaller mistakes in several scenes - mostly in the second act. Especially because of that the Theatrical version of this quite entertaining comedy should definitely be preferred to the workprint. Unlike the following movies of that genre, which were possible because of Scary Movie and its sensational success at the box office, this plot-copy only concentrates on one movie (or 1.5 if we want to be generous) and does not create a new plot which is based on 10 other movies. Other movies are only referenced for single jokes.

Alternative footage is marked with ALT, exclusive footage of the Theatrical version is marked with TV, those of the workprint is marked with WP.
