I recently purchased this movie on DVD because I am a big fan of Elizabeth Berkley and watched her as she grew up on Saved By The Bell. I thought this movie was outstanding and brilliant in every way! It is beautifully shot, and the special features on this edition are neat too. The picture is great and hi-tech, and the sound is great when you have digital surround sound.
This movie is about a girl, Nomi, who is running away from a troubled past. She flees to Las Vegas in hopes of making it big as a Las Vegas Showgirl. Gina Ravera, known as Molly, takes Nomi, Elizabeth Berkley, in off the streets. To survive, Nomi works at a seedy strip club, The Cheetah. As she attends Molly's work, she realizes how wonderful it would be to be in the show, Goddess. She auditions and gets into the show. Then, a rivalry develops between the star Cristal Conners, Gina Gershon, and Nomi, and Nomi ends up hurting Cristal in roder to be the star off the show. After sleeping with the entertainment director, she ends up as the star of Goddess. All goes well, until Nomi realizes that she has hurt everyone along the way of making it big. She also realizes that Las Vegas would have probably been better if she never hitched a ride to that city. She makes a couple paybacks, and travels home with some gained knowledge of Las Vegas Showgirls.
All and all, this movie looked beautiful, and kept me wanting more. Buy this movie today, you'll never regret it.
