R-rated version review!
14 October 2001 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie when it first came out in theaters and I loved it. Then a few days ago, I rented the R-rated version of this movie and laughed even more than I did during the PG-13 version. I have had a lot of my friends say that this movie sucked and then I'd show them the R-rated version and they would quickly change their minds. Some of them rushed out of my house to go buy the R-rated version. I know that the rating shouldn't make the movie funnier, but it does. In my opinion, there is no such things as too racy when you are trying to make people laugh. That is what the R-rated version does. It has tons of added racy footage that makes the film funnier because it makes me laugh more. I'm not saying that just being crude is funny, I'm saying that when the crude content is used right, it can be funny and it is funny here. I now own both the R-rated version and the PG-13 version and both of them make me laugh, yet it's the R-rated one that makes me laugh harder. Steve Zahn and Jack Black get more screen time in the R-rated version. It's a good thing too because I thought that the PG-13 version gave Amanda Peet and Jason Biggs way too much screen time. Now everyone gets a fair amount of screen time. It's better that way. It's also a better film that way.
