According to the Hollywood Reporter, Twentieth Century Fox may cut out some of the naughtier bits from There's Something About Mary and re-release the Cameron Diaz-Ben Stiller comedy as a PG-rated film by the end of the year in the USA. The idea for a recut version originated with writer-directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly, who felt that the current 15 (R in the States) rating has reduced the number of people who can see it. A final decision has not been made, but there are some problems associated with a re-cut: first, the film hit the number one slot last week in the States after eight weeks - which is in itself something of a marvel; second, Fox would officially have to wait until Mary's box office run is over before sending out a new version; and third, removing some of the more memorable scenes may make the film unwatchable (no-one's telling whether new footage would be, or has already been, shot).
