The DVD edition of the film retains more footage not seen in theaters. These scenes are:
A longer scene in the car when Lin Shaye and Sam Huntington are driving to St. Bernards Academy.
Longer scene on the highway which Natasha Lyonne and her clan is introduced. It runs about 3-5 minutes longer.
A longer scene of the opening to which the four boys are singing "Rock N Roll All Nite"
Longer confessional scene with Melanie Lynski and Sam Huntington.
Longer scene with "Elvis", the custodian.
Longer scene with Shannon Tweed and Edward Furlong.
At least four alternate takes of the final concert scene.
This movie was great,funny,cool,realistic and entertaining The Story of four teens who play in a KISS cover band who got tickets to go see KISS in Detroit, but a series of unfortunate events stop them from going to see the concert,and they don't stop at nothing to get all the way to Detroit for the Show of their lives.
The Best thing about this movie is that the characters are believable, they are exactly what you would expect, and they act exactly like normal teenagers would in the late 70', in most teen movies you see the usual cliché's, but not here.
All in all this movie is very entertaining, you never get bored, and the movie really puts you in these guys shoes and feel just like they would in that type of situation.Plus the movie is filled with an awesome soundtrack, with bands like AC/DC, Van Halen and of course KISS who also appear in the film.
So my advice to you (if you like good ol Rock n' Roll and Fun movies) is to rent Detroit Rock City invite some friends and Have a great Time.
