Basic Instinct 2 : Banned in America

OK, so you make a high-budget movie, featuring a sizzlingly sexy actress, lots of nudity, violence, and intrigue. You hype the heck out of it, spend millions on advertising, get oodles of earned media, and the first weekend, it flops.

Obviously, it’s censorship.

Paul Verhoeven, director of the first “Basic Instinct” (which scored $353 million worldwide) as well as the widely ridiculed “Showgirls” (now regarded as something of a camp classic), attributes the genre’s demise to the current American political climate.

Anything that is erotic has been banned in the United States,” said the Dutch native. “Look at the people at the top (of the government). We are living under a government that is constantly hammering out Christian values. And Christianity and sex have never been good friends.”

It couldn’t possibly be that the movie is a steaming pile of shi’ite? Silly me.
