* WagTheDirector: Tony Kaye was removed from the project after shooting completed and Edward Norton delivered the final cut of the film. He's been accused of vainly giving himself more screen time, while others seem to believe that he merely stepped in to rescue the film from the scrap heap.

* DeletedScene: Three scenes were cut:
** A scene in which an elderly black woman is harassed and made to cry on the boardwalk by a bunch of teenage skinheads.
** A scene after the "party", in which Cameron and Seth go to a café and discuss Derek's change. They then harass a black guy/white girl couple, and then leave. A car is waiting outside, in which several black men watch them leave, before going after them. One black man inside the car remarks "Somebody's gonna get their ass whipped." The aftermath is not shown, but we later learn that Cameron and Seth were attacked.
** A brief scene in the café near the end in which Derek winks at a little black girl and asks her if he looks okay.
