an example.of newly discovered things:
When Ashtray is dropped off at his dads in a moment in parody of Boyz n' The Hood, he is greated by his younger-than-him father. Throughout the scene, you can see plastic on everything on the house. The stove, the tv, the weight lifting set, shelves, furniture, etc. Absolutely hilarious.
Also, keep an eye out for after they get Crazy Legs and to go to a party. While they are walking toward camera and entering the backyard from the side of the home, pay attention to the banner that is backwards to the camera and read it. I almost peed a bit. Could not stop laughing. After hundreds of views, when I think I know everything about the film and the hidden queues and messages, I see it in hd for the first time and since childhood and am blown away by the subtle or hidden things that are revealed. This movie is loaded. You certainly had to be alive and aware through the 90's to relate to humor at the fullest.
Now, I've purchased it on VHS, then upgraded to the bare bones DVD and the Unrated Collector's Edition DVD. When I saw it was on Blu Ray, I wanted it.. The picture is slightly better than the Unrated DVD and it has all the same bonus features + a music video..BUT, even though the Blu Ray is dubbing itself as the director's cut, it's the theatrical version which clocks in at 89 minutes..hence the original R-Rating . The Blu Ray cover lists it with a running time of 95 min, which is the unrated version's running time... More confusing, the Miramax Unrated DVD (released around 2007)indicates it's running time is 89 minutes, when it's really 94 minutes. Needless to say, if you have the Unrated Miramax DVD, don't bother upgrading to the Echobridge version, it's just the theatrical version with the unrated version's special features..
Great movie either way. Btw, I do applaud EB for making an effort to include special features, considering they're a budget label not known for bells and whistles.. Who knows, maybe the people that now own Miramax (it's not Disney) now demanded the inclusion.. However, these companies need to be a bit more diligent when they release products.. it's their job to give accurate descriptions about their products and features, so as to avoid class action law suits and recalls.. It's pretty sad when they say features and included and they aren't or post confusing info just in hopes to get an extra buck or two out of anxious collectors....I'm just sayin'...
