In the original trailer for the film, we see a low angle shot of Ving Rhames and Pandora Peaks. That shot did not appear in the film because it took place during the original climax of the film. That climax was re-shot after being shown to a preview audience. Orginally, the final sequence took place in a sugar cane field. After preview audiences were uncomfortable with the scene, it was rewritten and re-shot in the sugar shack. We still see the final shots of the original sequence that shows a character being taken away in handcuffs. See more »

of overlooking this little gem when it was first released. Probably suffering from Demi-overload at the time or something. However, this is a terrific sleeper. A great combination of humor blended into the dark side of strip clubs with a good dose of real politik. Demi Moore is outstanding as a newcomer to the "Eager Beaver", a raunchy strip club where she does a more than adequate job of raising pulses while
Ving Rhames watches over her as self-appointed guardian(he's great as usual), and Burt Reynolds has never been funnier as a U.S.Congressman that would make Bill Clinton proud! The scene where he covers himself with vaseline to make love to Demi's "essence" is hysterical. This movie has a few low points but overall I give it a solid 9.
