I can't remember the last time I saw Striptease as well. I may have to bust that out and do a proper review for it.

You know, I have to say I like my take on Showgirls better.  Is that wrong?  Oh, and I at least was thinking it would be like Penny's arc in Forrest Gump, which I'm sure is redundant of something else since that movie is just a big best-of compilation (not that that's a bad thing, you get all your nostalgia in one go).

I remember ages ago I took the sequence where she's dancing with the towel over her shoulders and put a different song over it and it actually worked just as well.

See, another thing with Striptease is that there's a clear endgame, she's got to earn a certain amount of money to hire a better lawyer and get her kid back.  I get that endgame, everything else is just complications.

I will say, it would have been interesting to see Demi Moore in that black leather dance number...

Dancing With The Stars’ Season 17: Elizabeth Berkley Deserves To Win

Look who just got added to the upcoming season for DWTS. Personally I don't watch this show. Haven't seen an episode since Season 2 or maybe it was Season 3. Anyway, I will probably tune in to see what she can bring to the dance floor. Might be fun.

This was released two years ago.  No one noticed.  They're gonna do a re-release.  Don't think anyone cares.  Dare I show you the trailers?

I've known about the sequel for a couple of years, but I've NEVER seen it at any Mom and Pop shop for rent. Need to see if the Library has a copy, but I doubt it.

FYI, that Showgirls 2 Trailer makes the first film look like Casablanca and Citizen Kane all rolled into one. Just the audio alone tells you how amateurish the production is. Listen to it and you can tell there is no production value to it at all and sounds like it was recorded using an on-camera mic, rather than an actual boom mic.

And then there's the horrible line readings and acting throughout. Glenn Plummer is usually pretty good in everything he has done, but in this one it looks like he had just learned his lines, rolled camera and decided to print the first take. I was interested in checking this out, but after watching that Trailer, I have NO plans to even see if my Library has it.

This is why you do what I do and just write your own version.  Hell, you don't even have to write it, just list out what you WANT with a couple details and your mind will put it together, and that way it'll be awesome cause you don't have to deal with the problems, you can just amp up the potential.

You know, I saw "Smashed" the other day and Aaron Paul was in it and since then, my mind's been putting together what it thinks Breaking Bad is and it's f*ckin' ****, man.

Elizabeth Berkley's Shocking 'Dancing With the Stars' Elimination

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NcTZeg6mMV8

I said that I was going to check out this season of DWTS, but I totally forgot that she was on this season. So, her getting booted is all I've taken away from this season.........

Honestly, I think doing the "I'm so Excited" dance was a pretty sure sign she was in trouble.  And this is coming from someone who hasn't seen more than five minutes of the show.

Did she really do that song and dance on the DWTS? If yes, then AWESOME!
