The poster

The MPAA requested cuts to various violent scenes in order to achieve an R rating.

The following are a list of scenes with cuts:

  • A scene where Fred is beaten to death by Jupiter was cut down a lot.
  • A scene where Mars and Pluto kidnap the baby was also cut down.
  • Originally while eating Big Bob's arm, Jupiter thrust it into Big Bob's face and stick its finger into Bob's eye. More of this scene was also cut down.
  • Scene where Katie hits Jupiter in back with ax.

The deleted footage has since become lost.
