Three versions are available in Germany: One version for department stores etc. This version lacks most of the violent parts and is rated "Not under 16". The other version, although rated "Not under 18", still misses two short scenes of violence (Christian Slater getting hit by a rack, a bloody saw lying in a bathtub). Last but not least the complete uncut version was released after the re-rating in 2004 when it was given a "Not under 16" rating. See more »
I *wanted* to like this movie, I really did! I'm a fan of black comedies, and have always had a soft spot for Christian Slater. While the performances in this film are solid, the execution of what appears to be a bizzare and funny script is haphazard and appears to have been phoned in. I can't quite put my finger on what ruined this film for me, but I do know that this is not a film I will be revisiting or recommending to others. If you want a black comedy starring Christian Slater, my advice is to check out "Heathers" instead.
