Alternate Versions

The DVD release features quite a few edited scenes, including:
  • Brian takes Anna to the club while it's still under construction


  • Brian tries to come into the bar with a bottle of liquor in his hand. The bartender tells him 'No Bottles', so he promptly drinks the remainder


  • Brian and Jakob walk through an art museum with Anna (featuring the scene from the Gag Reel where Anna can't say the name of the picture she's standing in front of); eventually, her cel phone rings, she has a yelling match with a co-worker, and falls in the fountain (also seen in the Gag Reel)


  • A bit with young Jakob and Brian making a kung-fu movie with a home video camera


  • Anna talking to Ruth about Jakob and Jake's brother (establishing exactly why Ruth never forgave him)


  • A piece from Jakob's date, where the woman talks about running and breast implants before having a sneezing fit and smashing her face on the table


  • Jakob tells Anna to put her pager under her skirt while she's at work, and he'll call her; two co-workers come in just as Jake starts calling, trying to get her to help them work out the numbers as she 'gets buzzed'


Also included on the DVD is a Gag Reel, a long collection of outtakes featuring several bits of 'sermon' from Jakob, Anna stuttering and falling into the fountain at the museum, a rabbi and Jakob discussing how the 'director is god and the producer should kiss his ass' and 'the jew has to try out for SAG president', and Brian falling several times trying to catch his glass at the bar. Many of the finalized scenes these outtakes relate to also wound up as outtakes.
The UK distributor (Buena Vista Home Entertainment) chose to remove 19 seconds of footage to classify the DVD for a "12" rating instead of a "15" rating. Cut weren't scenes from the film but from the outtakes due to inappropriate language for a "12" rating.
