Opening text: Disclaimer: 1) a renunciation of any claim to or connection with; 2) disavowal; 3) a statement made to save one's own ass. Though it'll go without saying ten minutes or so into these proceedings, View Askew would like to state that this film is - from start to finish - a work of comedic fantasy, not to be taken seriously. To insist that any of what follows is incendiary or inflammatory is to miss our intention and pass undue judgment; and passing judgment is reserved for God and God alone (this goes for you film critics too...just kidding). So please - before you think about hurting someone over this trifle of a film, remember: even God has a sense of humor. Just look at the Platypus. Thank you and enjoy the show. P.S. We sincerely apologize to all Platypus enthusiasts out there who are offended by that thoughtless comment about the Platypi. We at View Askew respect the noble Platypus, and it is not our intention to slight these stupid creatures in any way. Thank you again and enjoy the show.
At the end of Loki and Bartelby's discussion of the arch's ability to cleanse the soul of all sin, in the DVD version Loki says, "If I had a dick, I'd go get laid." In the original theatrical version, the line was, "If I had a dick, I'd masturbate," referring to the Catholic belief that masturbation is a worse sin than fornication. (Essentially, this is because fornication can lead to marriage and procreation, but masturbation cannot.)
