Overview

"I'm gonna dance," Nomi Malone (Elizabeth Berkley) insists in the opening scene of Showgirls, and dance she does. In this quasi-update of All About Eve, Nomi is a drifter whose sole ambition is to headline the "Goddess" topless dance show at the Stardust in Las Vegas. Of course, even Nomi must pay her dues, and she does so at the Cheetah, grinding poles and lap dancing her way to a future. Fortunately, her roommate, Molly, works at the Stardust and invites Nomi to see the show, where she meets Crystal Conners (Gina Gershon, in the Bette Davis role), with whom she immediately forms a love/hate relationship. Nomi soon learns what she must do to get ahead, and the rest of the film documents her cat-like crawl up the showgirl ladder of success. Directed by Paul Verhoeven, (Robocop, Basic Instinct, The Fourth Man), Showgirls was conceived as the first big-budget "adult" film since 1977's Caligula, and the first such production to wear the NC-17 rating; its failure at the box-office discouraged further attempts at large-scale adult productions.

The movie so cheesy you just have to watch it... I am repulsed and fascinated all at once, and cannot look away. From the moment hitch-hiking Liz Berkely flashes her jack-knife to the leering truckdriver, I'm hooked. Never has such horrendous acting, pained scripting, and cliche'd plot brought so much pleasure. What a classic. Thank you, Paul Verhoeven!

Love to Hate it Every character is a selfish, shameless, opportunist. The story is intense and absurd at the same time : And, yes, this has Elizabeth Berkley fully nude. Plus Gina Gershon and Bobbie Phillips just short of full nude. This is a comedic and explicit example of how trashy Vegas can be. Fans love to hate it.

Only serious film buffs may get the high degree of pleasure that this howler delivers (and it is not the same pleasure that this film delivers to young teen boys looking for skin-shots.) It takes an appreciation of good taste, and a solid sense of irony, to 'get' one this bad, but it replaced 'Valley of the Dolls' as the best-bad in my book and that says alot. This one is epic. Seekers of camp and kitsch: this is the 8x10-glossy-motherlode.

Anyone who rates this movie badly with the opinion that the acting is bad and its too racey...please! You saw the cover and read the description before you got on this ride! Its a CAMPY CULT CLASSIC! Its supposed to be bad. In fact its the best bad movie ever made! Numbers don't lie and this is on the list of top 20 bestselling MGM DVD's. Enjoy it for what it is: taste-less trash that will make you laugh time and again! Pass the doggy chow and the lee press-on's and roll the film!!!

Yeah, yeah, it's one of the worst movies ever made; we've read the reviews. Still, Showgirls is that rare film that's so howlingly bad it's surprisingly entertaining. In attempting to make a serious drama about ambitious (and mostly nude!) Vegas artistes, Verhoeven and Eszterhas gave the world one of the best-ever unintentional comedies. Finally, someone figured this out and packaged a re-release that acknowledges Showgirls' over-the-top campiness.

This trash-fest is fierce. Elizabeth Berkeley is over the top. Gina Gershon is sexy and mean. Kyle McLachlan is basically a chin with a nice butt. The whole cast has done themselves proud, whether they were in on the joke or not. The plot is wonderful and awful at the same time. Theres so many great one-liners it makes my head spin. Nothing and I mean NOTHING can compare. I dare you not to love it.
