Release[edit]

Preceding the film's release, Eminem's lawyers attempted to have his scenes removed from the film,[2] and tried to halt its distribution.[3] In 2003, Artisan Entertainment planned to reissue the film on VHS and DVD with artwork prominently advertising Eminem's appearance in the film.[4] Before the film's reissue, Artisan recalled copies featuring this artwork without official explanation.[4]
