Rated R for sexual content/nudity and language

When the term "Unrated Edition" (or in this case "Uncorked Edition") appears on the cover of a new DVD release, it can be logically deduced that there's a reason for it to be there. Perhaps scenes were added that didn't meet the censors approval or they dubbed back in some swear words. Either way, there's something there that wasn't there before. Unfortunately, as far as

Wedding Crashers Uncorked is concerned, the words on the cover are largely unnecessary.

The movie, wildly funny for the first hour before settling in as a generic romantic comedy, is virtually the same as it was in the theater.

The special features, however, completely live up to their billing. If you're the type that buys a DVD for the bonuses, then Wedding Crashers Uncorked is worth your money. The DVD includes the typical special features for a release of this kind, but is also far more comprehensive. The two stars (Vaughn, Wilson) sit down for a commentary session that runs the length of the film, as does director David Dobkin. There are four deleted scenes, including one scene titled "Bluefish" that leads into the absurdly funny touch football scene and another riotous scene where Jeremy (Vaughn) and John (Wilson) karaoke Nena's "99 Red Balloons" at an Asian wedding. The full-length theater version of the film is here, also. Two brand-new featurettes were added as well: one called "The Rules" and another called "Event Planning." Finally, the "Rules of Wedding Crashing" are included, along with a music video and all trailers, teasers and TV spots.

All in all, excluding the theater run version of the film, there is probably a good 90 minutes of additional footage, which mostly makes up for the fact that the movie is essentially the same.
