The DVD edition of the film retains more footage not seen in theaters. These scenes are:
A longer scene in the car when Lin Shaye and Sam Huntington are driving to St. Bernards Academy.
Longer scene on the highway which Natasha Lyonne and her clan is introduced. It runs about 3-5 minutes longer.
A longer scene of the opening to which the four boys are singing "Rock N Roll All Nite"
Longer confessional scene with Melanie Lynski and Sam Huntington.
Longer scene with "Elvis", the custodian.
Longer scene with Shannon Tweed and Edward Furlong.
At least four alternate takes of the final concert scene.
I thought this movie was fairly entertaining, the performances were good,especially Edward Furlong and Sam Huntington, although the character of Jam's mum was a little overdone. I thought the soundtrack to the movie was good also, it added to the film. I found myself comparing this movie to 'American Pie', due to its physical humour. I was surprised this movie didn't receive that much exposure and publicity. Overall an enjoyable 80 or so minutes at the cinema.
