Did the world really need a director's cut version of Swept Away?
The director’s cut has nude scenes that were stripped from the version shown in theatrical release. DVD buyers “get to see Madonna romping on a beach with her naked male co-star Adriano Giannini, and in another shot she has her legs wide open while lying on the floor,” notes one source. “These sexy scenes were not included in the original version of the movie but adding them to the DVD will, [Madonna and Guy] hope, grab the attention of the home movie market.”
Given that the original film was apparently too much in and of itself, isn't adding more to it just asking for trouble?
