Preceding the film's release, Eminem's lawyers attempted to have his scenes removed from the film, and tried to halt its distribution. In 2003, Artisan Entertainment planned to reissue the film on VHS and DVD with artwork prominently advertising Eminem's appearance in the film. Before the film's reissue, Artisan recalled copies featuring this artwork without official explanation.
