In the original theatrical version, during the airport sequence after Jerry and Rod argue, the Paul McCartney song "Momma Miss America" is played. In the television version, Aimee Mann's "Wise Up" is used instead.
The version prepared for the cable TV premiere on Showtime includes a new fictional Reebok advertisement at the end of the film over the closing credits. Director Cameron Crowe originally decided not to include the commercial, who features Cuba Gooding Jr. as athlete Rod Tidwell, in the theatrical version because he thought he ruined the ending. Allegedly, the fictional commercial has been reinstated because of a lawsuit between Reebok and Columbia Pictures over the terms of product placement in the film.
