According to an interview with screenwriter Steve Barancik in Creative Screenwriting, ITC Entertainment executives thought The Last Seduction (1994) would be a typical "Skin-e-max" movie popular on premium cable channels. One executive was upset when he viewed a scene in which Linda Fiorentino wore only a pair of suspenders instead of being completely topless. When viewing the dailies of the scene, the executive asked, "Are we making an art movie?!" He demanded that the scene be cut and made the principal cast and crew pledge that they had no "artistic pretensions."
In the scene in the bar, after Bridget slapped Mike at the office for touching her and the two are making amends, when prompted by Mike for more information, Bridget actually tells him some truth, saying she stole a million dollars and spent it all. While the figure was in reality $700,000 and she had only spent a little of it, it's one of the few times Bridget is actually honest with Mike. However, since the story seems incredible, Mike immediately dismisses it as another lie.
