    I always liked the movie 54, about the infamous NY disco Studio 54 back in the late 70s. OK, well, maybe I just liked Ryan Phillipe shirtless. Last summer I noticed they were showing the "director's cut" at Outfest here in LA - allegedly it contained some added homoerotic material.

    I missed the showing at Outfest but last night I decided to watch the movie on Amazon VOD. Wow! It's like a whole different movie! A much hotter movie... icon_biggrin.gif

    It seems there was quite a lot of sexuality that didn't make it into the theatrical release.

    If you ever wanted to see Ryan Phillipe making out with guys, check it out!

    Ryan Phillipe is a hottie for sure. I've never seen the movie but the director's cut sounds like a better version to check out.

    Apparently the original cut played poorly with a test audience, so they cut out all of the scenes depicting Ryan Phillipe's bisexuality (which was supposed to be key to the plot) and shot 25 additional minutes, much of which played up his heterosexual love interests.

    The new version removes a lot of the added material and restores 44 minutes from the original - but some of it is rough quality since it was salvaged from the cutting room floor.

    He is so hot..i think he looks even better now.
    I remember the movie got pretty bad reviews and it came out when Boogie Nights was released and that is far superior. I remember the clubbing grandma from the film and not much else maybe i'll check it out again.

    I'll have to check this out, as I am a huge Ryan Philippe fan, and have been for years. I saw the film in it's edited version originally, but will have to go back and check this out!
