It's listed as being 121m, rather than 126 most places. And it's only rated PG, which would seem to indicate it's been trimmed.

Can anyone help me find out?

THIS FILM HAS NOT BEEN CUT FOR UK RELEASE.

And by the way, the R2 UK release seems to be the best one in terms of extras...
(At least compared to R1 and R4)

ALWAYS go to the BBFC site before you buy an English DVD
http://www.bbfc.co.uk

The catch is to MAKE SURE that you look at both the FILM and VIDEO sections of the searchable database. Sometimes the video section will say "Passed Uncut", but it's actually cut--because the studio submitted the same version that they were forced to cut during the theatrical run.
