They're just not the same. Look, you can take out the cussing. I don't mind. You can blur their middle fingers when they extend them. I still know what's going on, but I'll meet the censors halfway and pretend I'm dimwitted. I'm also okay with movies being shortened to fit the time frame. Hey, Hollywood is all about bloated content anyway. I won't miss it. But sometimes they go too far.

Just now I'm watching Beverly Hills Cop on TV. It's a great movie. I like to watch it from time to time. But they really cut it up. They just showed the strip club scene. I can't quite put my finger on it, but I know there are important things missing from that scene that somehow tied the whole movie together. There's just no point in watching it now.

I've noticed the censors are particularly ruthless about things that come in pairs... strange...

When they removed that one line from GI Jane, it ruined the whole thing for me...
