           In this rarely-seen director’s cut, the nerds of the comic book convention don’t just get back at their oppressors, they actually murder them.  This cut was seen only twice as part of a test screening at the old Klondike.  After both screenings, the crowd unanimously agreed that the ending was a bit harsh.  The brutality of the murders was one thing.  The fact that the massacre lasted for 35 minutes was another.

         In the end, the character of Deerdorfe was softened just enough to make him not ‘loose it.’  And, along with the elimination of the bloodbath ending, the title reflected the tamer, softer, more urbane tone of the film.

         “Goofball Squad” grossed $700 million on its opening weekend and became the 3rd highest grossing film of all time.
