Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo...why are there 2 covers?

At Target tonight, I saw the "Assume the Position" Edition. At Wal-Mart, it just says "Special Edition" on the cover. The rating + features looked the same. Anybody know why they'd go to the trouble of creating 2 different covers? Or is something different on one? Not that I'm going to buy it, but it makes me curious... thanks!

$19.99 is a little high for a very, very guilty pleasure. I'm sure I'll get it later, maybe at Hollywood in a few weeks when it's $8.

Well, WalMart sometimes gets toned-down covers. Funnily enough, the one that springs to mind is Secretary, which had the tagline removed... which was "assume the position". (The posterior view of a bent-over woman? That stayed.)

Picked this up at BB low price sale and had the same question. Did a search and found nothing really but this thread. So, does anyone know why there are two covers? Like previously stated, they both appear to have the exact same specs/features. I even looked over at dvdcompare, but they don't even have it listed.

They are the exact same dvds, I have noticed that too, and bought the "Assume the Position" Edition for $10.00 one time at target. Just think about it, would most retailers think that title for a dvd is appropriate to sit on their store shelfs. Probably not.

the undercover brother dvd has dave chappelle all over the cover now, even on the spine-and it's the same exact dvd. sometimes they just change the covers for now reason. (the undercover brother one is a little more obvious though)

Yes, but my reason for asking is because they both appeared to come out at the same time, not in succession. That is why I thought they may have different content.
