People getting offended over a fucking animated film need to get their priorities straight.

People have been getting offended since 1934 when Betty Boop had to tone down her act. 😉

And language!

The Godfather Part III in theaters originally ran at 162 minutes, but for all home video releases a 170 minute “final director’s cut” (it says this only on the VHS cover even though DVD and blu-ray versions are the same) was created while the 162 minute version never made available on home video at least in the US (idk about international home video releases)

That could possibly qualify on this list even though I can’t find any comparisons on any website.

Can you get me a source? If you can’t find one, I’ll put it there anyway, but I don’t want to edit it twice 😁

first of all here’s an IMDB link:
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0099674/alternateversions?tab=cz&ref_=tt_trv_alt

on this link right before it goes into the video and audio quality reviews it says: “As in all home video releases to date, though not specified and oddly never rerated by the MPAA, Part III is presented exclusively in a director’s cut running nine minutes longer than the theatrical edit.”

and here’s another link I found regarding another third version being made and the director’s cut being mentioned

here’s a picture of the original VHS cover

here’s one final link mentioning the director’s cut of 3
https://theasc.com/ac_magazine/May2008/PostFocus/page1.html

to quote: “After working through The Godfather and Part II, the team turned to the much more recent Part III (1990), which required no restoration at all; they did a digital intermediate (DI) to create the director’s cut, a version that previously existed only on home video.”
