Did actually see "Signs" starring Mel Gibson on DVD and "enjoyed" some of the DVD's features such as the deleted scenes.

I found out why deleted scenes are deleted. There were a total of five such scenes:

1) A badly written piece of dialouge between Mel Gibson and his brother.

2) Two Flashbacks which really didn't further the plot.

3) A scene with a burnt dead bird on the ground which was actually better explained by some dialogue in the movie.

4) A scene where Gibson remembers dislocating his brother's arm. It made sense when he was remembering his children's birth but not this.

Conclusion: Scenes are killed mostly so we don't waste six minutes of our lives watching totally irrelevent things. And if we really want to, we can wait for the DVD.
