Comparison between the regular HK Theatrical Version, in form of the current German DVD and the Taiwanese Version, in form of the French DVD, which contains this version as bonus.

The continuation of the film "My Lucky Stars" was released in a longer version in Taiwan. The French DVD contains this version as bonus. The quality is not worthy for a DVD release, but rather good. Small disadvantage: The film is only watchable in Mandarin and with fixed French captions.

Some smaller scenes, that made for less than a second, have not been included in this report.

Length German DVD: 91.03 Min
Length French DVD (Taiwanese version): 102.51 Min
Scenes of war, mass-agitation and other scenes can be seen at the beginning. In the Taiwanese version, there are more scenes to different points.
in total 40 Sec

Note: The Taiwanese long version lacks the green credits of the regular version in this intro sequence. Also, interestingly, Raymond Chow gets the first producer credit (instead of Cho Yun-Ok).

Rawhide works out on the stairs. Bonehead comes by with strange dislocations. Rawhide gives him a kick. Bonehead complains and moves along while doing strange exercises.
25 Sec

The Breakfast scene occurs differently in the two versions.

Normal version:
Herb explains Kevin in the German version, what the boys like. He gives them one plate after the other and explains them, that he can supply them effortless with Pepsi. The "Lucky Stars" come to table short time afterwards. All of them open the bottles with their mouth and splash each other up, but especially Kevin.
Length HK: 62 Sec

Taiwanese Version:
Herb comes in with Breakfast, gives Kevin each plate and tells him which food is preferred. Kevin puts too much spice on each meal, which Herb gives him one after another. However, Herb wants to eat by one of these meals by himself. Kevin tries to stop him, but it's to late. Herb spits out everything and complains to Kevin. Kevin leaves. Herb tries his luck on a second plate, on which Kevin put too much spice on as well. He spits once again and screams after Kevin while swinging a knife. Cut. They all sit on the table. Kevin has a knife in his chest. They all look rotatory to Kevin and then to Herb. He tries to defend himself until they find out that it was only a joke. They all sing a song as if they would say a prayer and close their eyes. Everybody but Kevin opens their eyes and continue singing. They all take their food and throw it in Kevins Face once they are finished with singing.
The Taiwanese version goes effectively longer.
Length Taiwanese: 175 Sec

The short scene with Rawhide and Bonehead, in which Bonehead acts like he didn't hear the ringing, differs in both version as well. The content stays the same, though. The Taiwanese version goes a little longer.
