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 appear... read more

ShowGirls which is meant to show us what living in Las Vegas and being a showgirl is really like. Is more of a Melo-dramtic look at vegas and life itself and what happens when your a pretty stripper.Elizabeth Berkley plays Nomi Malone a ditsy blonde with a tragic past (which is never really revealed).Everyone who even gets a glance and Nomi suddenly is awestruck with the fact that she is gorgeous.... read more

A very bad movie

It is such a weird flick... On one hand, it is really bad and I was just plain bored during the whole thing. On the other hand, there are so many ways to interpret this movie, it makes it almost an interesting flick. I mean, even though it is a pretty horrendous production, since then, it belongs to the stuff of legend. For example, sometimes, I wonder if maybe Paul Verhoeven just had enough with ... read more

Description: Nomi Malone sets out for Las Vegas to become a showgirl. After working as a stripper, she gets her big break at a chorus line audition for the Stardust Casino production, 'Goddess.' She soon finds out that 'showbiz' is a rough-and-tumble world--is she tough enough to claw her way to the top? And if so, is it really worth it? Kyle MacLachlan later recalled seeing the film for the first time at the premiere: "I was absolutely gobsmacked. I said, "This is horrible. Horrible!" And it's a very slow, sinking feeling when you're watching the movie, and the first scene comes out, and you're like, "Oh, that's a ... (more)

"30.7. Blu-ray Vanha kunnon troolari-Verhoeven onnistui Showgirlsin kanssa niin hyvin, että sitä vihataan ja pidetään yhtenä kautta aikain surkeimmista elouvista yhä. Ei pysty ymmärtämään. Elizabeth Berkley päärolissaan on joko aivan kujalla tai helvetin hyvä näyttelemään naiivia ja tietämättään hyväksikäytettyä nuorta naista. Hyväksikäytön muotoja kuvataan raivostuttavan tehokkaasti, joiden vaikutus on entistäkin lannistavampi, kun kohteella ei ole hajuakaan, mitä t"

"FORMAT: 35mm PRINT QUALITY: ★★★★½ NOTES: Although a cut follows one of Mama’s jokes about her breasts, the horrible scene in which Molly is violently raped plays slightly off position and the credits suffer prominent damage, the print otherwise looks so stunningly crisp and vivid that any dust that does get in the way is hardly noticeable.

"SCREENING: 35mm DATE: July 20th CINEMA: The Prince Charles Cinema LOCATION: West End NOTE: Intended to see this double-billed with You Don’t Nomi, but a few days walking into chanting, COVID-spewing football men’s territory put me off and I moved it to the day after our bumhole Prime Minister lifted restrictions while self-isolating (still a safer environment than it would be during the Euros, ironically).

"6.11. Paul Verhoevenin parjatussa seksielokuvassa näyttelijät vetävät naamat vakavana eroottisia tanssiesityksiä samalla, kun kohtausten toteutus riisuu esityksistä kaiken erotiikan. Esitystapa on hyvinkin itsetietoiseen camp, mutta alleviivaamattomuus saa leffan näyttämään kalkkunalta. Näyttelijöiden habitus saa katsojan epäilemään, että kyseessä on tekijätiimin trollaus, jossa näyttelijät ovat tekemässä täysin eri elokuvaa kuin muu tiimi. Lopputulos on hämmentävän ki"

" Elizabeth Berkley and Kyle MacLachlan"


mhthehammer posted a review 1 year, 4 months ago

“Showgirls is one of those trashy chick-flicks that you invite your college girlfriends over to your house accompanied with jeroboams of wine and champagne. Nomi Malone (Elizabeth Berkley) hitchhikes to Las Vegas where she dreams of becoming an exotic dancer at Stardust Resort. There, she goes through other adventures such as forming a friendship with Molly (Gina Ravera), performing pole dances at the Cheetah, making an unlikely friend with Stardust Goddess Cristel Connors (Gina Gershon), having periods during dance rehearsal, weird crazy sex with Zach Carey (Kyle MacLachlan), pushing Cristel down the stairs, meeting Andrew Carver (William Shockley), Molly’s rape and assault, and beating up Andrew Carver. I know this is a movie that continues to show midnight screenings at cult theatres, ” read more

Movies I Think Should Be Adapted into TV Series (20 movies items)

"Considered one of the worst movies of all time, but I see potential here as a series. Imagine a gritty drama set in the 70's. A young woman with aspirations to be a professional dancer travels to Las Vegas to audition to be a showgirl, but doesn't get in. The only other dancing gig she's able to find is for a gentlemen's club that just happens to be called "Showgirls". Here she gets pulled into a world of sex, drugs, and the criminal organizations that run parts of Las Vegas; providing distracti"
