Any Given Sunday (1999) Poster

Alternate Versions

Alternate television versions of several scenes were filmed.
Because European audiences normally don't know the rules of American Football, approximately 12 minutes of footage (scenes of foul play) were cut from some European prints to shorten running time.
Although billed as the "Director's Cut" and boasting 6 minutes of added footage, the U.S. DVD version is actually shorter than the U.S. theatrical release, which ran 162 minutes. Even with the added footage, home video versions run a mere 157 minutes. Among scenes/shots cut from the DVD incarnation...
  • Some locker room footage during halftime of the first game.


  • A voiceover phone call between Cindy and Christina following the first game is re-cut.


  • Tony's drunken barroom speech about giving everything for his players, prominently featured in the trailer, is entirely removed.


  • The second game is re-cut.


  • Game 3 begins with a Kid Rock song in the theatrical version. The DVD opens game 3 with a Black Sabbath song, and the game is heavily edited, with much of the football action rearranged or cut entirely.


  • A beach football game between the players and bikini-clad beauties is trimmed.


  • A brief bit in which Rooney antagonizes Willie during practice is cut.


  • The final game is slightly re-edited, with a new scene of a player losing an eye added, as well as more footage of Caps's comeback montage, but other plays are cut in slightly different ways.
