Next Section: Alternate Versions
Thanks to AnonymousIn the original cinematic screening, there is a sequence shown of Dorothy clearing up after babysitting Amy while Julie is out breaking up with Ron. A lot of the apartment was messed up and Dorothy runs round cleaning up - in double speed. This is now missed out - but we still hear Dorothy shout "I'll be out in a minute" when Julie arrives home. It's during this minute that the cut sequence took place.
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 on Blu-ray or DVD.
