The U.S. version of this movie has several alterations made to the soundtrack, where some British expressions are replaced with more "American" ones. "Nut rissole hound" becomes "veggie burger hound", "suspenders" becomes "garter belts", "Ford Cortina" becomes "Ford Escort", and "MFI" becomes "K-Mart."
