Here is a full screen vs. widescreen comparison for Havoc.
The top cap is from SDTV (480i) and is about 1.33:1 aspect ratio.
The bottom cap is from HDTV (720p) and is about 1.85:1 aspect ratio.
The R1 DVD has about the same aspect ratio and framing as the HDTV but less res.
The SDTV appears to be open matte meaning more picture on the top and bottom. The sides are also slightly cropped. However, during one sequence in the Bijou Phillips sex scene, the SDTV reverts to pan & scan. I’m assuming this is so they don’t show any unintentional nudity. Fortunately, they didn’t touch the Anne Hathaway scenes.

As you can see, the full screen Havoc is the best version for nudity. This is usually not the case, as the widescreen usually has more nudity.
Here are some notable movies where the full screen version shows more skin: The Abyss, American Pie, Bully, Carrie, Carried Away, Dark City, Doc Hollywood, Dream Lover, Embrace of the Vampire, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, The Gift, Jackie Brown, Kalifornia, Kama Sutra, Killing Me Softly, Lost and Delirious, A Map of the World, Mischief, Monster’s Ball, Prozac Nation, Requiem for a Dream, Resident Evil: Apocalypse, Showgirls, Single White Female, Stardom, Unfaithful.
