The film was originally rated R, because there's too many bad words and violence. Universal edited the film, to get rid some of the words from the mild language and some of the violence sequences, and make it more teenage-friendly. The finished film was rated PG-13, which was a lot much like the first film.
A "director's cut" edition, which was rated PG, was released on DVD and Blu-Ray on October 16, 2012, which only has the words “damn”, “hell”, and “crap” as well as a use of "ass" and a cut-off use of both “bitch” and “bastard” for brief comical moments. It cuts of the gun violence without the blood. It cuts out stronger language including "sh*t", "son of a bitch","f*ck", and "asshole" being replaced by kid friendly words. Plus, the beer drinking seen is replaced by Root Beer.
It is unknown if the police clone can either stay in their cells that the peds captured them forever or to escape from their cells.

Norman was supposed to be dead in the second film. However, he turned himself into a cyborg, now known as "Normanator", and will be appearing in the third Geoshea Theft Auto film.
