The UK theatrical version was cut for a PG rating by 2 minutes 11 seconds:
[Reel 2] During discussion in prison on space ship and in cage after landing remove references to men being castrated.
When heroes are on conveyor belt remove threats of castration and repeated sight of snapping jaws.
[Reel 3] After alien creature bites heroes, remove reference to it as "Space Herpe" when Jason reads cargo manifest.
Remove sight of man's head falling off after woman slices sword across man's neck in fight in bar.
[Reel 4] Remove reference to Space Herpe after it emerges from hunk of meat.
After talking head delivers up ring on tongue, remove it asking, "Want to make a deposit?"
[Reel 5] Establish only lovemaking between Jason and Princess after they go to the passion chamber with back projection, removing all sex double entendres in their dialogue and implication of oral sex.
Ice Pirates is the funniest sci-fi spoof, and one of the best comedies ever made. There is no way that Galaxy Quest is even close. Even Spaceballs has to take a back seat. Ice Pirates is Spaceballs on Nitrous Oxide.
Of course, to appreciate it you'd have to have seen a lot of science fiction movies, as they are what Ice Pirates is poking fun at. Fans of Red Dwarf are also advised to take a look at this film, as it was obviously an inspiration for the show.
