In the German dubbed version, various dialogues were removed or changed:
When the New Kids meet the old man he says "This place was packed with Jews in 1942. You would hand them over to the Nazis and they would give you anything. That was a good deal.". This became "In 1942 I got everything I wanted from the Germans. That was a good deal."
The scene where the old man presents a Nazi uniform and says "Goebbels gave me this jacket. Personally! He was a nice guy." was deleted.
In the end credit scene the one of garbageman tells a sex story to his colleague. The dialogue of that scene was deleted, you only hear the music.
And I enjoyed this movie very much. This is not a comedy for simpletons.. Yet they will enjoy it as well.
I think the acting was very good, (spot on!) and portrayed the characters just as they should have been. I loved how the characters dressed in outfits circa 1990's and followed failed trends of Americans.
There are a lot of smart jokes if you're quick enough to catch on, if not - there are plenty, and I mean plenty of crude humored situations as well.
I don't see how you can miss the entire story-line, but there is a story, and it comes together incredibly. Definitely different from the norm as far as stories and characters go.
I found this movie to be very clever and entertaining. I could not stop laughing throughout..
