Paramount, which released the film, has a different word for it: copyright infringement. "We will take all necessary and appropriate action to protect our interests," says a spokesman, claiming the Biesingers are compromising the film's artistic integrity. But the Biesingers' clients say Paramount is all wet. "I wanted my kids to see the movie because it's historical, and the special effects are amazing," says homemaker Carrie Perucca, 38, of American Fork. "But I didn't want that garbage in there."
The Biesingers have sanitized videos for personal use since buying the business in 1996 and bringing flicks home to watch with daughter Connie, now 16. Don, 54, says studios should do the same. "They should put out family-friendly versions of their R movies," he argues. "They do that with airlines and TV. All it takes is a snip here and a snip there."
