Review of Showgirls

No matter what anyone says this will forever be my favorite movie of all time. The sheer audacity of this film makes it an immediate cult classic and a misunderstood gem. Essentially a loose remake of All About Eve, Showgirls sets out to tell a fairly straight-forward tale of a woman on a quest to rise above her previous station in life and the (correct) assumptions made of her due to her appearance. The over the top gyrating and extreme nudity must follow due to the setting and story being told. The nudity could seem gratuitous in any other director's film, but this is Paul Verhoeven so it is par for the course. I fully admit the movie is "bad" but one can love a bad movie as long as one admits it is bad but can love it in spite of said badness. With that in mind, I repeat that this will forever be my favorite movie of all time.
