Editing Changes Everything: Editors Gone Wild!

What happens when an editor is turned loose on film material without the boundaries the Director sets for the film? Hilarity! Let's start a list of your favorite examples of films that were re-edited to completely change the nature of the original. Here are a few starters (thank you Jeff Piotrowski for your contribution):

Top Gun, as a romantic gay comedy

Mrs. Doubtfire, as a thriller

Big Lebowski Recut

my blog entry on "The Sining" as a romantic comedy

Groundhog Day as a thriller
