Compared are the Standard Version by Columbia TriStar and the Extended Version from Canada by Lions Gate.
There are 34 differences with a total length of 5 minutes and 31 seconds.
33 cuts = 7 minutes and 3 seconds.
1 alternate scene = +1 minute and 32 seconds.
The Standard Version was released in most of the countries worldwide, it's the most common version. According to the IMDB, the scenes were removed for the release in 1997. The German DVD for instance only contains the Standard Version as well do the US DVDs. The Japanese LD contains the Extended Version. The easiest way to get the Extended Version is buying the Canadian DVD because LionsGate released it there (English audio track, no subs). The front cover looks pretty much like the US DVD by Columbia Tristar but as mentioned the US DVD is just a release of the Standard Version.
In the Standard Version, the year 1996 is being displayed. It's 1994 in the Extended Version.
After Jenny called for her mother, the door opens and her stepdad comes in. They don't like each other. He gets rough and threatens her.
But the stepmom comes up the stairs and the stepdad lets go of her. Both show up at the stairs. She says everything was fine and he says sth. disparaging about Jenny's boyfriend to her. Then some pictures are being taken, which is also in the Standard Version, but the sound of the photographing is louder than the music in the Extended Version. (The noises are well known from the first TCM!)
In the Standard Version, the noises are barely audible.
