and I caught
We watched it
anyway, despite my saying “What's the point?”
“Showgirls” isn't that good of a film, and it's not bad enough to
actually MST3K it. About the only reason to
watch the film is to see lots of gratuitous nudity (Gina Gershon! Nude! Woo
hoo!). But it was showing on VH1, not known for being a premium
channel like HBO, and seeing how the film itself is rated NC-17 (for nudity
and erotic sexuality throughout) then really, what's the point?
Whole scenes were cut out, and when they couldn't cut the scenes with total
nudity, they added bikinis (rather badly done ones at that) to hide the fact
the cast was nude (it looked more like a marker was applied directly to the
film) and of course, they changed dialog, Gosh Darn it.
While watching it, Spring kept asking me, “How could you do this with sock puppets?”

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
