In the DVD and theatrical cut, when Brian is first in the monster's world, he runs into a creature that has long legs and says, "Trick or treat, smell my feet." For some reason, in most television airings, this is changed "Anyone who is a friend of Maruice's is mine." See more »
Although I did enjoy this movie (and gave it a 7), I found the PG rating a major misstep by the MPAA. Cuss words, adult situations, more than cartoonish violence .. not that the movie is lessened because of it .. but at the beginning of the video I rented, there was an add for kids to call a 1-900 number and try to win prizes related to to the show - but this movie is in no way made with kids in mind. Howie Mandel hams it up, and an early movie appearance by Frank Whaley is five minutes of fabulous.
