The German VHS version contains several more lines of dialog, mostly from characters off-screen to make scenes funny in German. For example: When Hudson Hawk falls into the chair after he jumps from the roof of the auction house, the Butler says he collects Concorde tickets because once you get 100 "you get a stewardess for free" and Antony Mario adds that he would prefer the pilot.

This movie is a classic farce (something Hollywood hasn't done much of in a while - at least, not intentionally). Situations and characters are so far over the top it's amazing they don't just float off into space. Bruce Willis is in cute smile / sarcastic wisecrack mode - more like his 'Moonlighting' days as opposed to his current action hero motif - he gets to deal with psychotic billionaires, the "MTV-IA", (somewhat) organized crime, and attractive nun from the Vatican. They play this one on cable quite a bit lately, and I still get a kick every time I channel-surf to it - it's good for a good chuckle several times a minute. Watch it, sit back, have fun, but don't try to take anything even remotely seriously!
