The video version in 1986 was cut by 5 seconds in order to receive a "PG" rating from the BBFC with edits made to shots of workmen sniffing white powder from a cocaine-covered car during the opening sequence. In 2004 all cuts were reinstated and the video was re-rated "15". See more »
It is a mystery to me why this movie has such a low rating. Anyone who would enjoy Tom Hanks (and thus, a decent flick) should love this movie. Not only is it funny, action-packed, and suspenseful (a rare combination), it boasts an all-star cast all along the way. A unique film, shot on location in beautiful Georgetown, with tons of excitement, zany plot-twists, and interesting characters to spare. If you have yet to see it, check it out now!
