The club scene originally included a fight between feuding frat boys that was broken up by Jerry with the use of his hypnosis powers. Although the scene was cut, the frat boys can still be seen around the DJ booth when the t-shirts are thrown into the crowd. See more »

I was anxious to see this remake and while it had a decent look over all, I came away with several complaints and many problems with the overall story board. There were moments when the action was exciting and even thrilling to watch. I just wish the producers had used the storyboard from the original Fight Night and redeveloped it with today's possibilities of tools.
One major complaint that really bothered me and seems to be a pattern in today's films geared to the youth and young adults today is the heavy handed use of vulgar language. This film literally beat a dead horse with the constant puke of four letter words. This, in no way, made the film a classic as was the original. This patter of insulting foul words showed me that today they (Hollywood) take cheap shots with the script. A very sad state of script writing that tells me we're in trouble in Tinsel Town.
Last note to share is that so few films are getting over the C rating or maybe it's just me wanting more quality from the movie industry.
