"1035pm Showgirls "Digital Bra" edit"
This is the one that's missing something like 40 minutes of footage right?
Yes, it's about 40 minutes shorter and any nudity that couldn't be cut has been lovingly equipped with extremely unconvincing digital underwear in AfterFX.
It's the best version of Showgirls.
It was also the first movie we watched, although it was only 4 or 5 of us and we hadn't found a workable, free streaming service yet so we saw it at like 120p 10fps over Tinychat.
I can't believe MacLachlan refused to do the proper Twin Peaks season 2 storyline with Audrey "because morals", and the first thing he does after Twin Peaks is fucking Showgirls.

I looked this up. Apparently, the decision rested with insane bitch and future plastic surgery disaster Lara Flynn Boyle, who was seeing MacLachlan at the time.
>>>Kyle MacLachlan refused to further develop the storyline about his character Dale Cooper’s relationship with Audrey Horne (Sherilyn Fenn), resulting in the writers having to abruptly change and add several second season story lines. As originally scripted, Audrey Horne would have been the one kidnapped by Windom Earle and taken to the Black Lodge in the series finale; the characters of Justice Wheeler and Annie were written in specifically to give Dale and Audrey “appropriate” love interests. At the time, the relationship between Cooper and Audrey was heavily publicized in TV Guide and other entertainment magazines, akin to the press given to later TV “power couples” (such as Mike and Susan of Desperate Housewives). The move alienated audiences and caused a further decline in the show’s already suffering ratings. At the time, Kyle MacLachlan attributed his insistence to a belief that the morally upright Cooper would not date an underage girl; however, Audrey was a high school senior who, in the time line of the series, would have graduated in one to two months, and in fact was not “underage”— in Washington state, the age of consent is sixteen, and Audrey is seventeen in the pilot. Crew members who would later attend the annual Twin Peaks convention would recall that MacLachlan was pressured into the decision by his then-girlfriend, Lara Flynn Boyle, who did not want her boyfriend sharing love scenes with Fenn, with whom Boyle did not get along on set.
Lara Flynn Boyle has the distinction of being the only cast member I know of who was openly critical of the show, bad-mouthing it in talk show appearances while it was still in production, and refusing to reprise the role of Donna or the movie. (Which is fine with me, because Moira Kelly took the role, and in the nineties, I was super into Moira Kelly, and Moira Kelly was super okay with taking off her top.)
Anyway, MacLachlan had already appeared in Blue Velvet, in which Isabella Rosselini had forced him to submit to fellatio at knifepoint. He wasn't objecting to the affair because it was an immoral choice for an actor to portray, but because it wasn't a good choice for the character of Agent Cooper. In that respect, I think there is an argument to be made.

Boxing Helena didn't get the love it deserved (It had bill paxton's naked penis for crying out loud!) but I had a great time during the anniversary / awards show.
