The Director's Cut of PH better reflects the film Michael Bay set out to make (the PG-13 was done for Disney to increase the box office take) and is one of my favorite films. All of the footage in the Director's Cut was shot at filming time but was trimmed or not used to get the coveted rating.
The romance is a bit cheesy, but if you've ever listened to the commentary it's supposed
to be; it reflects a World War II sensibility as opposed to some type of hip, post-modern take on things that people seemed to expect walking into the theater.
In fact, in my experience I've found the closer the age of those viewing to those who actually remember the attack, the greater their fondness for the film.
So no, no joke. A BR of the VIsta Edition of Pearl Harbor
would have me buying the disc and a player on the same receipt.
