At approximately 1 hour, when Regis and Nina are escaping the hotel room, they leave through the back door of the room and Regis slams the door completely shut behind him. There is a jump cut to the front door as the Secret Service agents enter. When the scene jumps to the back door again, the door is slightly cracked open and you can see a shadow moving on the other side of the door.
The UK cinema version was uncut and rated 15. However, video and DVD releases were cut by 4 seconds to remove the neck-break in the kitchen fight scene.
