Comparison between the US-DVD (R-Rated) and the German DVD (identical to the Unrated).

This movie too did not make it through the MPAA unharmed; the sex scenes in it were too explicit, so they had to be cut down for the R-Rating. In the R-Rated, the scene has almost nothing in common with the original version.
Apart from the cut version an Unrated Version also hit the stores in the USA. On the whole, there are 68,64 seconds missing with a total number of 14 cuts and 1 recut.
Running time of the Unrated Versionincl. ending credits: 1:48.15 Min (PAL).
Running time of the R-Rated Version without ending credits: 1:51.38 Min (NTSC).
The time data derives from the Unrated.
The German version contains an additional logo.
12,64 Sec

The sex scene has been recut completely. In the Unrated the man walks towards he woman while dropping his pants, in the R-Rated they're at it right away. After that, the scene mostly consists of alternative shots, so I'll just let the screenshots speak for themselves. Unfortunately, it was was not possible to come up with screenshots from the R-Rated. But you won't miss anything that is not in the Unrated as well.

R-Rated: scene duration: 47,92 Sec (NTSC 24 Frames/Min)
