UK version was edited (14 sec.) to secure a 'PG' rating:
[74 mins] Remove backward kick to man's stomach (3.02 sec.)
[77 mins] Remove sight of man's arm being broken over bonnet of car (2.48 sec.)
Why did this movie not make it? The idea was original and the movie was very funny with great acting all around, especially from Townsend who is totally believable. The ending was in my book one of the most exciting and uplifting endings in movie history, and that is just one of the many great scenes in this picture! So do yourself a favor and watch this movie.
