    With all these Director's Cut or Unrated versions of some rather dubious movies (The New Guy, The Animal, My Boss's Daughter...) coming out - why isn't there a Director's Cut of Tank Girl?

    There are few movies that have been butchered more by the studios than Tank Girl - here's a good list of all the stuff that has been cut:

    The director seems to be willing to do a Director's Cut and it would turn a bad but very enjoyable movie into a bad but extremely enjoyable movie.

    Maybe if Naomi Watts wins an Oscar they could even use that to promote it.

    I don't really thing anything can save that movie but it would nice to see an uncut version any way. I read the comic book adaptation and all those scenes were in the comic and I always wondered why they were in the comic and not the movie.

    Well, those films you mention are all fairly new films that didn't do great. By putting out "director's cuts" of these, they increase awareness & appeal to the "ooooh, unrated == nasty" market...

    Indeed the rumor is it was she who created the half-hour outtake reel that was widely available. The prologue is great. I don't remember too many of the other extras, but the prologue is a "must." What they did for Buckaroo Banzai, they should do for Tank Girl.

    After watching Mulholland Drive I went to the IMDB and looked Naomi Watts up because she looked vaguely familiar - although I had seen Tank Girl several times I didn't recognize her until I read that she was Jet.

    I remember reading years ago (in Cinescape maybe) that the kangaroo suits also were equipted with weiners - there were full frontal kangaroo shots removed as well.
