The version on USA Network includes scenes cut from the theatrical Version:
A scene where Lori and her boyfriend Perry are on couch on the first night with Max outside the patio door, where Lori remarks "look how he become attached to me already."
A scene where Lori does her last story on Max, just after Max dies in the scene in the Lab before we cut to three month later, where Lori meets with Rudy to show her the puppies.
Scene where Ray has his balls bitten off by Max is cut, jumps right to Emaxx lab scene right as Max goes for Ray.
In the TV Version, the scene when Max escapes, when Lori and Anne are in the lab when Dr. Jarret throws down his duffles to the floor as max ignores his commands to "enter" He says "damn it" instead of his real words "God damn it".
The scene of the mutilated mugger is removed; all you see are the detectives looking at the dead body.
The scene where Lori and Anne are trying to escape from Emaxx after being caught by the guard, when they reach parting elevator doors, revealing Dr. Jarret, "great" is substituted for Anne's original response, "shit".
Dog that has had genetic experiments conducted on it is saved by a news reporter investigating a sciene lab. However, the dogs genetics have been mixed with several other animals and it kills anything or anyone that gets in the way of him and his new owner. Fun premise with some creative moments goes down the path you would expect, but still is entertaining anyway. The cast is used to little effect as this is a showcase for the dog.
Rated R; Violence and Profanity.
