DVD TUESDAY – Can’t Hardly Wait

posted by The Joe

Screw John Hughes – this is the greatest high school comedy ever made. The legendary deleted scenes cut to make the original version PG-13 are on this 10th Anniversary Edition disc, along with a new commentary (and the fantastic original) and three new featurettes. Huzzah!

UPDATE: Nevermind about those deleted scenes . . . there’s only a tiny handful, with nothing involving Amber Benson’s ‘stoner girl’ and only a brief glimpse of the subtitled ‘crying girl.’ Alas. The featurettes are pretty neat though. Read about everything (still) cut over HERE.
