Rated NC-17 (USA), banned in a few countries. Special features has director commentary and some extras including a lap dance tutorial.
Crystal (played 100% to the max, by Gina Gershon) is raw with so much camp, and absurd a mile a minute one-liners that you can't help but adore her. Gina Gershon, is all pouty trout lips, extreme hip-gyration, and butch lesbian undertones. I love Crystal. She the comedy role for the movie. Everything she says is ridiculous, and everything she does is calculating. But she's always right on the money.
Nomi on the other hand, makes out with a series of losers, treats her only real friend like a dish rag, and then beats up a rapist, and spits in Kyle McLaughlin's face before leaving Las Vegas. the film closes on a marquee of Nomi, aptly air-brushed, and vacant as she was throughout the entire film.
So then, why do I like Showgirls? That's simple. It's vulgar, and trashy. End of story. Some people like action films, some like Oscar films, some like comedies, and some like independent films. Me, well, I too like all of the aforementioned genres. But the day-to-day stress relief films, devoid of substance and deliciously awful on every level, those films I will always champion. Because, as a viewer, and as an advent film watcher, I feel we need the good, as well as the bad. Cinema has many things to offer.Read more ›
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.
As for the movie, I found it to be an excellent drama about Nomi's tumultuous rise to stardom in the cut-throat world that the movie depicts. Is it a realistic view of that world? I don't know, I'm not part of that world. It's a MOVIE, it's entertaining, and there isn't a dull moment in it. I find it odd and hypocritical that people are bashing this movie left and right, calling it the worst movie ever, yet giving it an average rating of 4 to 5 stars!! Folks, you wouldn't be able to make a movie about this aspect of the Vegas club world without exotic dancing and nudity!! Just because there's nudity and violence in it doesn't automatically make it trash. Enough with the persistent Victorian-age attitude towards nudity in movies!! It's fine to dislike the movie if you don't like this kind of story, but it's a good movie!! And I thought Elizabeth Berkley was excellent in the role that she played. Nuff said.
