Was this film edited before it was released in America?

I ask, because there are quite a few scenes referenced on this page that I don't remember seeing when I watched the movie today.

What like? I'm in the UK, but have seen the film often enough I may be able to assist if you say which ones were missing.

Just from scanning: I don't remember Jamie talking to Malcolm on the phone, with or without Ho Yay, at any point in the movie, nor do I recall him mentioning There Will Be Blood. The entirety of the entry under Foe Yay. Don't recall that. Or the entries for Heroic BSOD and Villainous BSOD (I remember the scene the latter references, but I don't recall Malcolm having any problem talking to Toby).

They're little things, I suppose. But I literally just watched the movie an hour ago, and I couldn't have forgotten it that quickly.

The There Will Be Blood example comes from the webisodes released before the movie, consisting of deleted and bonus scenes. It wasn't in the final cut. That's where the Foe Yay entry comes from, too. They're on the DVD under bonus features, I think.

I imported the Region 2 DVD, but I'm pretty sure it's the same version between the Region 1/Region 2 releases. I don't have a Region 1 DVD on hand to check, but maybe the time codes will help ID if some scenes are missing! It would be really interesting to have a definitive answer.

The phone call between Malcolm and Jamie starts at about 1:15:00, when Malcolm dashes from that hallway after meeting the bald ambassador.

I think Malcolm's problem talking to Toby was when he's at a loss for a quick threat, which he's usually a master of. "... the shin bone," he manages, then tries to salvage the tirade, heheh. For Malcolm, that's a breakdown of epic proportions. ;)

The car alarm thing comes from when Judy finds Simon eating mints in the meditation room at about 1:23:00 on my DVD.

It's all so quick, that half the scenes are sort of "blink and you'll miss it", but it would be really interesting to know if they did a subtle re-cut for the Region 1 version.
