What are the differences between the Theatrical Version and the Unrated Version?
For the home theatre market, an unrated version was released aside from the R-rated theatrical version. Most scenes which were re-inserted or alternately shifted, serve to specify character drawings and various aspects of the story which were only embedded in the theatrical version to some extent. However, there are also a few extensions with sexual contents and more explicit depictions of drug use. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
