Brief Synopsis:
This is Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Boogie Nights” with 20 minutes of deleted scenes added back in.
Intention:
I didn’t make this Extended Edition as an attempt to improve on “Boogie Nights.” I think it’s is a perfect movie, no question about that. Even though these scenes were wisely deleted, they crack me up consistently, so why not make a super-long and over-extended cut of the flick. This is an Anti-Director’s Cut, if you will.
Additional Notes:
Sadly the deleted scenes aren’t available in HD, so there’s a noticeable quality drop for those scenes. Nothing too ugly or jarring, but they’ll be obvious.
Release Information
  • NTSC DVD-5
  • MP4/M4V/MOV
Special Features
2 additional deleted scenes not added
Editing Details:
Note that the majority of deleted scenes are what PTA refers to as “Ham and Cheese”, scenes where he let the camera roll on his actors improvising. The only scene that really changes the narrative is the “Becky and Jerome/Car Crash” segment.
Cuts and Additions:
Added the following deleted scenes in full –

Ham and Cheese
Buck and Amber in the van
The 2nd Awards Ceremony
New Year’s Eve
Maurice and Rollergirl
Mixing “Feel the Heat”
Under the Table
Becky and Jerome/Car Crash

Added part of “Brock and Chico 16mm” as an end credits scene.

I did not add “Fire with Fire: The Brock and Chest Story” as it was too long and uninteresting and I couldn’t find a good way to incorporate it without it looking sloppy.

As well, a few minor trims were made in order to add some of the new scenes.

I’m not sure how the director could have left these deleted scenes behind. Neglify spreads apart the film and firmly inserts these segments to create a deeply satisfying edit. This version isn’t merely about length, with swollen storytelling spewing irrelevant junk at us—no, oh God, oh my God, no—the inserted scenes flesh out the characters as they probe and thrust their way toward their sad climaxes. Highly recommended—come check out this release. It’s an epic ride.

I'm going to try to keep the dick puns to a minimum. This is a great extended edition. Dammit. I mean, the editing process must have been long and hard. Fuck. What I'm trying to say is, the deleted scenes are edited well and don't bulge out from the rest of the film. Shit. What I'm getting at is that this could have only been pulled off by a long standing member of the community. Ah, fuck it.

Boogie Nights is one of my favorite movies: funny, sad, shocking all rolled into one. Dare I say Mark Wahlberg does some great acting in this. But because of it's length (no pun intended) it's not a movie I rewatch very often. Neglify's Extended Edition gave me the perfect excuse to revisit the movie. The editing (both audio and video) was well done (Neg's got the touch! Neg's got the pooowweeer). As Neglify readily admits, the deleted scenes are of lesser quality and it's noticeable. But this is a problem lots of faneditors run into, and one that can easily be excused and looked over as that's what the editor has to work with.

Overall a very enjoyable edit.

Great job with this edit. This is one of my all-time favorite movies so I was happy to see an extended edition. Sure, most of these were cut with good reason but it's a really enjoyable alternate experience to watch it all as a 3 hour cut. The scenes are of lower quality but it's not jarring and looks as good as it can. The visual and audio cuts are seamless. The music was especially well done over the deleted scenes to create a really seamless experience. It won't replace the original for me through no fault of the editor. The theatrical cut is just perfect in my opinion, but this provides a fun alternative that I will certainly revisit many times.

wow what a fan edit.
i loved this movie when it was released but i dont get to watch it much anymore due to my wife's disgust for the movie(i think she caught me looking a heather Graeme).
i love the thought of the deleted scenes added, but they dont really add a whole heap and there is a reason for them getting cut out of the movie.
i love the ham and cheese deleted scene as it is as badly acted as a real porno but just the whole scene is funny and well worth adding it back in.
it a very well edited fanedit, as i said earlier i am a big fan of the film so i knew were all the scenes were added but as normal it is edited perfect (normal for neg) there were no bad audio cuts and yes the movie does feel longer but i will be watching this cut again as i had a really good time with it and i highly recommend this edit.
