Showgirls commentary track
While I’ve never had a chance to catch it, for a while now local Seattle writer David Schmader has been hosing screenings of the infamous Showgirls, providing a running commentary skewering the film in what I’ve heard makes for an absolutely hilarious showing.
MGM, rather than taking umbrage at this, has decided to play along, and has asked David to record a commentary track for an upcoming special edition DVD release.
After numerous successful screenings, Schmader was moving on when “Showgirls’ ” producer MGM called. Rather than suing him for commercially skewering its product, MGM asked him to provide a commentary for the “special edition” DVD to be released at the end of July.
That’s just cool. Good for you, MGM.
