The 131-minute unrated version contains several additional scenes as follows:
The conversation between Annie (Kristen Wiig) and Mother (Jill Clayburgh) is slightly longer with Mother telling her about Father's "chicken coop" sex act, and it also reveals that Annie's father grew up in a farm.
Becca (Ellie Kemper) mocks Annie for being single and offers to arrange a date for her.
The car ride with Lillian (Maya Rudolph) and Annie after the bridal store fiasco is longer and different than the theatrical version. In the new cut, after Lilian admits crapping her wedding dress, Annie starts to feel uncomfortable, gets out of the car and throws up.
When Annie is at the bathroom, Gil (Matt Lucas) and his sister were in the bathtub together. He asks Annie to hand her the disposable shaver and shaves his sister's armpits.
There's a new 5-minute scene where Annie has a date with a guy called Pete. While waiting at the living room for Pete to get ready, she has a very uncomfortable conversation with his son Taylor (he's talking about "fear of dying", asking about Annie replacing his mother, etc..). After Annie goes upstairs, she overhears Pete talking on the phone telling his wife how he missed her and describes Annie as unattractive. Shocked by that, she went back downstairs and saw Taylor taking some contraceptive pills before leaving the house hastily.
The home video of Megan (Melissa McCarthy) and Jon (Ben Falcone) is slightly longer. She sticks a slice of ham on his chest and eats them. However, Jon's reaction doesn't tell whether he likes it or not.
I can't believe that this is what passes for comedy nowadays. This is a depressing story of a girl who hits rock bottom and keeps falling. And falling. And falling. And just when you think it can't get any more miserable or depressing it does. It just drags and drags in a joyless manner the majority of the time. There are maybe two laughs the whole time and the rest of the movie you're cringing at the ridiculous things the main character does and the stupid way she ruins all the good things in her life. The only thing that's actually funny is the fat girl. Overall I think only sadistic people could enjoy this movie. Just don't see it if you don't want to see people getting diarrhea in their bridesmaid's dress.
