Did You Know?
She can sing, or she can scream. But she still pissed me off.
There are quite a number of differences between the Canadian TV version and the version released in the US. The main and most noticeable difference is that in the American version, Omar's voice was chosen to be re-dubbed over with another actor. In the original version, Omar was voiced by Gregory Salata
. When re-released in the United States, MGM did not approve of the dialog or voice and chose to re-dub the character with a more notable actor: Paul Le Mat
. Another noticeable difference is that the original version features a higher quality soundtrack than the Ameircan version. You can actually hear the guitars as well as the back up vocals are much louder, as are some sound effects throughout the movie that are barely audible in the US version. And finally the last main difference is the Canadian version (which runs 20 seconds longer) features an expanded ending: Shortly after Mok gets thrown in the dimensional hole and Mylar comes out and starts to MC again the US version goes from here to the end credits. The Canadian goes on further showing more of Mylar talking about the show where he says "so long Mok, wherever you are", then says "just kidding, Mok's backstage, I think". Also during that they show "Zip" (the one brother that protected Omar from getting killed at the end, and instead he dies in the US version)wake up from slamming into the wall showing he did not die after all. Some other minor differences are when Stretch is playing the arcade game early in the film, in the US, it's a robotic guys voice yelling back at him, while in the Canadian version the game is a regular female voice yelling.
