Sony's ''Clean Version'' [Sanitized Movies]

Also I never hear them complaining about the "Raunchy, Unrated Cut" even when it is a worse cut. 

They only sold Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy in the theatrical cut (letterbox) DVD in the U.S. for a few months, and then years went by without it being sold at all. You could by the full-frame version or the Uncalled For Version. Only with the Rich Mahogany Version did they finally make the theatrical available in blu-ray. It is still unavailable in DVD.
What I'd read seems to indicate that the DGA has some kind of approval rule for cuts that is per viewing format. 

That being said, I agree that as long as (as addiesin said) you can choose your version, offering a clean version just enhances your viewing options (sometimes the clean takes are actually funnier).   I wish more directors would get behind it.  And yeah, The anchorman theatrical cut is way better than the unrated, no doubt.
