I was expecting the entire movie that I have seen on TV before. I'm very disappointed. The DVD is missing some 27 minutes of the movie, including the parts where Cheech gets his wallet back proving he's an American and the chase leading up to the marriage on the float! The very reason I bought the DVD was to have the whole movie not some cut down version!

Don't buy this version of Born in East L.A. They cut out the last half hour of the film. Try finding a version with the original cover, that has Cheech Marin crossing the border through barbed-wire. Otherwise, I would give this movie a 5 star rating.

This version of the film on DVD is better than the one from goodtimes productions. Yet both versions on DVDs are very edited from the original version. The film is a little longer, on scene in particular is the marriage scene at the end, how else did Rudy end up in a float at the parade, and that is just one major one. This DVD is good, but the old VHS version seems more "complete." I only wish Cheech had the support to create other such films!

I bought the Goodtimes version used and was disapointed the end was cut. Ipicked up the Universal version and found out it was also missing the last part of the movie. 5 stars for the original version, 0 stars for these versions.

Great movie, I dont know why the studios ended it like this, I have an old VHS copy where at the end they come back to the East side and are kidnapped by the people who are renting a house across the street from where Rudy's family lives....whats up with that, I feel robbed, they should of at least put that in a deleted scenes option.

I have been waiting for some time to buy this movie because it was one of my all-time favorites when I first saw it on television. Waiting to see if it would appear at a discount price (about $5-$7)I decided to go ahead and purchase it. I was disappointed to find out that this version had the shorten-version that did not show the marriage on the float at the end of the movie. Only then did I learn this movie had two different endings. Regardless, since it was one of my favorites, I decided to keep it anyway.

I love this movie, so I was going to buy this DVD no matter what. But I wish they would have included the alternate ending. Also, the DVD isn't widescreen and there are no extras whatsoever. I'm hoping a "collector's edition" will be released with these features but I doubt "Born in East L.A." is popular enough to warrant that.
As far as the movie itself, it is very funny and is full of hilarious characters.

I love this movie, it's a fun one. Nothing too deep, just something to be entertained by. I was a little disapointed that it is not availible in the widescreen verson. I havent seen this film in years until I got it the DVD I watched it and it just seemed like something was missing, I then found out that they had edited out some footage. I don't remember what was cut, but i'd prefer to see the movie in its entirety. If not for those two draw backs I would have given this DVD 4 stars.

Running time of Born in East L.A.
Actually, I remember seeing this one with a longer ending in the 1980's-I forget if it was in the theaters AND on VHS with the ending or if it was only on VHS. This one is ignorantly edited, not allowing one to see why he is on the float at the end. My copy was purchased at Wal-mart and was,... Read More
