| Lower your expectations and have a good time.
I had pretty low expectations for this, so when it turned out to be not that bad (almost, dare i say, pretty... good?) I left the theater extremely enthusiastic. It delivers, believe it or not, a complete, if not well-rounded story. Here it is, in a sentence: Jennifer Tree is a beautiful young fashion model getting things she doesn't deserve and deciding she needs to get the hell out. Elisha Cuthbert plays the lead, and she looks phenomenal. Even while she is being held captive, her "damsel in distress" act makes great cinema. Always nice to see a girl that's been passed off as a dumb blond get up and kick some ass. I know there are people that feel otherwise about this movie but hey- I liked it! So there!

  • Also after she escapes there's a scene that shows people wondering how she got out
  • There's more investigating and police work with the two male cops and there's a also a female cop who doesn't appear in the other version
  • Ben has an extra scene at a restaurant and more overall screen time Scenes that were added to the second (US/UK) version:
  • The acid shower scene
  • The flashback scenes with Gary and Ben as kids
  • The blender scene
  • The tooth-pulling scene
  • Jennifer being abducted at the nightclub
  • All of the dog scenes
  • The scene where Jennifer is on her cell phone
