When movies are made, scenes are often
left on the cutting room floor.
Sometimes, there will be several versions
of a movie floating about on cable, tv or video etc. Other times, a Director may
release a special cut of the movie.
Created in Canada there are two variations of the film, a US version and a Canadian version, each has a different voice for Omar, slightly different dialogue (and subsequently footage) to the other. The UK VHS release is of the US version - and very rare. Bonus points to the people who can spot the Canadian flag in the film.
"Rock & Rule" has a cult following but it's not a well known film because of a limited distribution and a limited VHS release. Now, 20 years after it's creation the new DVD release may finally help it reach the wider audience it deserves.
