Alternate Versions

The DVD features an alternate ending where after, we see 'Paul Reiser' get smashed by the garbage dumpster, it continues as we see Matt Dillon in his destroyed home and John Goodman lying dead on the floor; the cops come and arrest Dillon because they think he was responsible for the shooting and then we see Liv Tyler and Michael Douglas drive off and live happily ever after. This ending is refered to as "Alternate Depressing ending".
On the DVD R2 version the Gag reel features an alternate to the Paul Reiser death where he runs into the road but instead of the dumpster dropping on him he is hit by a garbage truck. The camera then cuts to reveal Helen Hunt as the driver (Helen Hunt played Paul Reiser's wife in the TV series Mad About You (1992)). The director's commentry on the DVD states that this scene was filmed as a backup in case the studio didn't like the dumpster death.
