~For release in the U.S., the actors had to go back and do all of their dialouge over again because their accents were too thick for Americans to understand. ~Many scenes were cut from the movie without Danny Boyle knowing it to acheive the "R" rating.
~Only Ewan McGregor's opening monolouge that begins with "Choose Life" had to be re-dubbed because his Scottish accent was too thick for Americans unfamiliar with the accent to understand. ~Two scenes were cut by Danny Boyle at the request of the Motion Picture Association of America to get the "R" rating.
