By removing all the unwanted characters and scenes the focus is kept directly on Bob and Charlotte.
i wanted the film to just be about bob and charlotte and i felt the kelly(anna farris) charactor,just didn’t belong and wasn’t needed at all.so all mention and sight of the charactor was removed and she isn’t missed one bit :),i also removed the bob/bar singer affair,i felt it went against the bob charactor,so it was removed,along with the following scene with bob and charlotte in the cafe talking about it.

I mildly enjoyed the original film and this edit too, but really I’m not sure which is better. I wouldn’t call LIT a film needing improving but it was nice to see an alternate take. 3 stars.
