Alternate Versions

When the film was first released at theaters everywhere in the United States, the film was originally rated "PG-13" by the Motion Picture Association of America because of some strong profanity (the word "fuck" is uttered only once, along with one obscured use of "shit", and several mild religious exclamations) a scene of an implied comical description of sexual innuendo, using Barbie dolls, and other crude dialogues; but the film was given a "PG" rating when the film was re-edited and re-released on VHS and released on DVD as part of the Fox Family Feature series. The "f-word" is spoken by Grabelski during the waterfall near-death experience. Despite having the film re-rated to "PG," The f-word was not dubbed in the 2001 Family Feature VHS and 2002 DVD release. See more »
