Alternate Versions

DVD includes 14 deleted scenes: they consist mostly of alternate takes of existing scenes (for example Ronna and Simon discussing outside the store) and longer versions of scenes featured in the theatrical release (such as the first conversation between Todd Gaines and Claire). Also included, however, is an alternate ending for the Vegas storyline, where Simon and Marcus find out they left Todd's credit card in Vegas and realize that the goons are on their tracks. They barricade themselves in Simon's apartment. Meanwhile Victor and his son are at Todd's apartment and are waiting for Simon. Claire finds Todd's gun and points it at Victor unaware that the gun isn't loaded. After a fight, Todd manages to wrestle the gun out of Victor's hands. Todd goes to Simon's apartment and, after Simon lets him in, punches him in the face. See more »

Fun, fast - paced and funny in a way
26 August 2009 | by ashwin-avasaralaSee all my reviews

The movie genre is not very uncommon, but it is still fun to watch. The twists and turns in the plot may not blow your mind away but are interesting and entertaining in their own way. The screenplay is awesome. The story is told from different perspectives and maintains a very fast pace all through out. You will be glued to your seat and wondering what is going to happen next. No part of the movie seemed boring or dragging as such to me. The actors would have had a tough time as the story gives no character hardly any time to establish their place in the plot. Nevertheless, everything simplifies as the story moves on. And it is funny. Not the clichéd slapstick,SITCOM comedy sort of funny, but the psychedelic,satirical,ironical sort of funny. Definitely fun to watch.
