Film was edited from its original "X" rating to a less explicit "R" rated version.
Magnetic Video VHS edition is of the 'R' version, and also has some of the old film clips removed (see Trivia).
"Special Edition" version on Fox DVD is slightly different:- The line "don't you ever forget it, you motherfuckers" is (awkwardly) redubbed to remove the bleep over "mother."- The movie clip used after Myron has an orgasm has changed from a war movie to a Laurel & Hardy bit, where Hardy has champagne sprayed in his face.- The entire scene with Myron waking up in the hospital is now black and white (this, says Michael Sarne, to make it clearer that the rest of the movie was a dream).
Between the DVD "theatrical" version, the "Special Edition" version, and the Magnetic Video version, there are several differences regarding whether or not old movie footage is tinted (Magnetic version has lots of blue and red, DVD "Special Edition" less, DVD "theatrical" the least of all).
