Comparison between the British DVD (BBFC 15) from Universal and the US-DVD (R-Rated) from Miramax.

In order to get around an '18'-Rating, the word "cunt" was replaced with the word "cow" on the British DVD. Cunt is maybe the last taboo word that makes the BBFC give an '18'-Rating. However, whether the BBFC considers the use of the word objectionable also depends on the context. Sometimes female characters can get away with it, whereas the use by a man is almost always condemned.

Running time of the British DVD without credits: 88:19 (PAL)
Running time of the US-DVD without credits: 91:57 (NTSC)
time index: UK (PAL)/US (NTSC)

On the US-DVD the Miramax logo is shown before the one of Universal. On the British DVD it's the other way round.

On the British DVD Julian curses "ham-fisted cow" at his manicure. On the US-DVD he says "ham-fisted cunt".
