DVD deleted/alternate scenes:
Matty, Marbles, and Chris sneak onto a golf course
extended scene of the introduction to the four friends
extended scene after the sheriffs find the money their dialouge is longer
A scene that shows the sheriff(Tom Noonan) stashing the money in some cerel boxes. This is an alternate to how the film would have ended. In the original ending you assume the money is in the bags, but are never really sure. This scene confirms that it is not.
Knockaround guys tells the tale about four guys wanting respectfull work from a mob. Matty (Barry Pepper), Taylor (Vin Diesel), and Marbles (Seth Green) are the main and interesting ones who end up losing $500,000 of the mob's money and must find the money within 2 days or the mob is in huge trouble. All the performances are greatly acted and the story (although a bit slow at times) is exciting. Vin's tallent is showing that he's going no where, but up! Barry Pepper delivers a surprising performance as the mob's son. Seth green is funny as always and a good character to add to this 2 hour ride of near garenteed enjoyment. IMDB.com shouldn't have rated this 5.9 out of ten because this movie deserves much higher, almost an 8. Watch this movie if you're a fan of crime dramas, comical action flicks or Diesel fans and you'll truely get a kick out of this flick. 7.2/10- my movie pro rating
