The TV network version has new scenes which include:
An additional scene on the school bus with Steve trying to get on Dags's and Reggie's good side with non-alcoholic beer and Miosky responding by spitting it in Steve's face after sipping some of it.
A scene in the quarry after Travis's escape from the reservoir where his inflatable life-sized doll, Lt. Urura, deflates.
An entirely new ending set at Fairmount High's graduation ceremony with the President in attendance. Travis crashes the proceedings by subduing Steve and stands on the stage and threatens to blow up the auditorium with dynamite strapped to his body. After Reggie finally tells Dags that Travis is the once who has been chasing them throughout the movie, they manage to talk him out of detonating the suicide bomb, and Travis is disarmed and taken away by Secret Service agents. The film then ends on a cliff-hanger when Dags and Reggie squabble over using Travis's gun which accidentally goes off while the President, Principal Moss and a Secret Service agent are in the line of fire. A person is hit and falls (the film doesn't show who). Dags and Reggie close the movie with their refrain "uh-oh" (implying that they might have accidentally shot the President).
Being someone who usually when he has the cash heads to the film theaters alone. I liked this film...the stuffy kid in the suit reminds me of what I possibly could ahve been like had I gone along with stuffy stupid republicans at a similar event. I was involved in the close up foundation and am so glad I lost. This film spoofs those functions. Naturally, this film was not about me or my situation in life (i am different than this character and excell at dressing like a slob and looking like one.) this is a film anyone tied in with student political groups in school could love. The film satires the political ssytem and student "young" party groups that are so green they have no concept of what the ssytemis actually like. Foolish kids breast fed on half truths in cirriculum books and the "90's senastionalism" news. A great satire on the gen x generation as well. Not as clever as ANIMAL HOUSE but clever enough..yet i am not a film maker and never will be one...who am I to judge. A fun night of viewing one of the few comedies I laughed at in the 1990's.
