The film was heavily cut to receive an M rating for its Australian theatrical run. The cuts were later restored for the R rated video release.
The film was uncut in New Zealand and was given the R18 rating. When the film was released on DVD in New Zealand, also uncut, it was given the R16 rating.
Originally was given an X-rating. Some extreme violence and sex was trimmed so that it could be given an "R".
In the cinema version, when Mo (Dylan McDermott) is dying one of his final hallucinations/dreams is of himself reading from the bible to Jill, and in this scene he has both of his hands rather than the prosthesis that he normally has, then they disappear as a black veil is drawn over the bed. This scene is absent from the VHS video release.
