Phoebe Cates' poolside bikini scene alone is the reason worth owning this movie.

I picked this up and I think it looks great. I was kinda shocked though as I was used to watching the TBS version when younger and we all know how edited that was. I don't think I've ever seen the unedited version before now but yeah it's a great movie.

It made me want Caddyshack to be released as a stand alone blu ray.

Um, Caddyshack is already out on blu-ray. The standalone release came out like 3 years ago..

Lots of nostalgia for this movie from my teenage years. I should pick it up sometime. Worth the price of admission just for the soundtrack alone.

It's funny to think of it today, but the Phoebe Cates poolside scene was always screwed up on rental VHS tapes back in the day, because so many people paused the tapes during that scene when renting the movie. I'm not necessarily saying that I personally contributed to this problem, but just that it was an issue with the VHS tapes back then from rental places.

Oh, I checked bluray.com and it only showed the triple pack for Canada but I checked Amazon.ca and it does have it. My bad.

Director Amy Heckerling has publicly stated that she strongly dislikes the extra TV footage. She cut that from the feature film and it was edited back into the film, without her consent or participation, by Universal in-house editors for the television version (prepared that way in order to fit television time slot requirements and to make up for other footage that had to be cut due to content issues).

Also, the extra scenes most likely do not exist anymore in a condition that would make them suitable to be edited back into the film, as the original negatives for these trims were junked by Uni back in the early to mid-'80s. I'd like to see them as a supplement, but I have a feeling as long as the director doesn't want them on disc, they won't appear on disc. The movie still runs quite often on basic cable, with those scenes intact, so it's quite easy to make a nice recording of them and they'd probably look as nearly good as they would if Uni slapped them on a DVD or Blu.

There are definitely some scenes on the tv version that needs to be on blu. They edited it so much they had to add scenes.


http://www.dailyscript.com/scripts/f...mont_high.html

I found the original script here. The the Stu Nahan scene was originally a Merv Griffin Scene.

DARKNESS

We are in the middle of a deep, dark void. After a
moment, a pinprick of light appears in the
distance. We head towards the light. We are being
led somewhere important.

As we draw still closer, curtains suddenly part to
reveal a wildly cheering studio audience. We hear
the voice of Merv Griffin.

MERV GRIFFIN (O.S.)
Will you please give a warm welcome
to... Jeff Spicoli!

The Merv Griffin Show band begins playing a Merv
Griffin Show version of AC/DC's "Highway to Hell".
Someone hands Jeff Spicoli a microphone. He works
the studio audience into a frenzy as he sings the
words to "Highway to Hell": Merv Griffin show
style.

SPICOLI
(singing)
'Layin' ladies!
Drinkin' wine!
You gotta dollar --
You're a friend of mine!
Gettin' loose!
Feelin' fine!
You and me -- It's get down time!
We're on the Highway to Hell!
The Highway to Hell!'

Spicoli finishes up with a spectular pump. The
audience goes wild as Merv Griffin greets him
warmly, and guides Spicoli to his seat. Spicoli
motions for the cheers to die down. Griffin is
obviously happy to see him. He touches Spicoli's
arm lightly.

GRIFFIN
How've you been?

SPICOLI
Outrageous, Merv. Nice to be here.
I feel great.

GRIFFIN
I was going to say... your eyes
look a little red.

SPICOLI
I've been swimming, Merv.

The audience howls. It's a famous Spicoli line.

SPICOLI (CONT'D)
Seriously, Merv, everything is
great.
I was thinking about picking up
some hash this weekend, maybe going
up to the mountains.

GRIFFIN
(concerned)
I wanted to talk a little bit about
school, if I could...

SPICOLI
School.
(sighs)
School is no problem. All you have
to do is go to get the grades. And
if you know something, all you have
to do is go about half the time.

GRIFFIN
How often do you go?

SPICOLI
I don't go at all.

The audience is howling again. He is Merv's
favorite guest.

GRIFFIN
I hear you brought a film clip with
you. Do you want to set it up for
us?

SPICOLI
Well, it pretty much speaks for
itself. Peter, you want to run with
it?

EXT. A MASSIVE WAVE - DAY

The film clip begins. It is a mammoth wave cresting
against the blue sky.

SPICOLI (V.O.)
Merv, this is the action down at
Sunset Cliffs at about six in the
morning.

GRIFFIN (V.O.)
Fascinating.

A tiny figure appears at the foot of the wave.

GRIFFIN (CONT'D)
Who's that?

SPICOLI
That's me, Merv.

The audience gasps.

GRIFFIN (V.O.)
Are you going to ride that wave?

SPICOLI
Totally.

We watch as Spicoli catches the perfect wave, and
it hurtles him through a turquoise tube of water.

GRIFFIN
What's going through your mind
right here, Jeff? The danger of it
all?

SPICOLI
Merv, I'm thinking... I've only got
about four good hours of surfing
left before these little clowns
from junior high start showing up
with their boogie boards.

The audience is howling once again... when suddenly
we hear the loud noise of a door opening, followed
by a shrill voice. It is Spicoli's eight-year-old
brother, Curtis.

Jeff Spicoli's dream of glory evaporates.

It's not edited down, it's the original R rated theatrical release with its original soundtrack

There are a number of excellent, character driven scenes in the TV version that have never been released on video as others have mentioned. While Amy Heckerling says she didn't like them (of course she's also said she dislikes the movie's soundtrack too), Cameron Crowe, the writer, was disappointed they were removed and has said he's tried to put them back in. I guess Heckerling, because she directed the film, has final say, but that's unfortunate because she's flat out wrong that those scenes don't add anything. Crowe disagrees with her and in this case he's right.

Frankly I don't understand why they were cut. They're not filler -- they actually add development to the characters in a movie that's cut real tight at 90 minutes and, if anything, could use more scenes that flesh out the kids so they're not just stereotypes. IMO, in particular, the scene at the end (in the TV version) with Ratner and Damone was really good, and never should've been taken out. Makes no sense as to why it was excised other than Universal wanted the movie done-and-over-with at 90 minutes. It's the sole criticism I have with the film...those scenes would improve the film, not take away from it.

At the very least, they ought to be on the disc. Studios seem to have a terrible track record at including scenes people have seen in TV versions.

I agree 100%. So many blu-ray releases are missing the tv cut footage, which is a shame. Would it kill the studios to just include the tv scenes as an extra? Do they not realize that as fans many of us have seen the footage on tv ourselves, so we know it exists?

A week ago at Fye I picked up Fast Times at Ridgemont High for $7.00 but it was the BD/DVD version (without the Digital Copy), the UPC doesn't match any of the other versions. I haven't seen listed anywhere. I don't know if its Canadian? It does have a date of 2012.
Maybe someone knows something more about it.
