Hey, all the threads are gone? May have been one on this disc in the past, but no way to search them.

Anyway, I popped in this HD-DVD for the first time tonight and at the beginning is a message that reads "This film has been modified from its original format. It has been edited for content".

What was removed? I looked at IMDB and didn't see anything about alternate versions.

The only thing missing is a scene shown after the ending credits where Stiller's camp bunkmate is taking drugs. Not a huge loss imo. The scene is described in the "crazy credits" section on imdb.

Thanks. No, it doesn't sound like a huge loss, but I wish they had just left it. Why go through the effort to remove it?

Probably because drug use has become less acceptable in recent years.

Other movies that have been edited I know of include "The Out-Of-Towners" (the hijacking scene was removed) and "The Program" (a scene with a boy lying between lanes on a road was removed after people started doing that in real life). I don't think either of those scenes have appeared in any home-video versions of those movies.
