The only difference between the LE and theatrical is the additional DVD with the "Director's Cut" and a cool "file folder" booklet. There are no additional extras on the LE.

You just have to decide if those things are worth the extra $7-10 you'd pay for the LE. For me, they were worth it.

Here's 2 DVDTalk reviews:

Everywhere over the net you read how awful the picture is of the LE. On top of that, the difference is - I believe - a few short scenes. That made me buy the normal version but hey, if you're willing to spend some $ more...

I'd pick up the cheaper regular edition. Save even more, pick it up from Columbia House if it pops up there in the coming months.

Unless you can get the LE for a really low price, I'd skip it and go for the standard version. The "director's cut" is an almost-total waste of time - it looks terrible and the additional shots are meager.

Here are links to my reviews of both DVDs:

Yeah, even though all my DVDtalk pals told me that the LE was a waste of $$$ I bought it anyway. I have to recommend you don't do the same. Go with the theatrical one disc and be happy.
