Product Description

Amazon.ca

When Goldie Hawn recommended Elizabeth Berkley for a small role in First Wives Club, she publicly stated that Berkley deserved the opportunity to redeem herself after starring in the ridiculous Showgirls. That says it all: this sleazy, stupid movie, which mixes soft pornography with the clichés of backstage dramas, is the kind of project an aspiring actress would have to put well behind her to keep a career going (though costar Gina Gershon certainly benefited from her, uh, exposure in the film). Berkley plays a drifter who hitches a ride to Las Vegas, becomes a lap dancer and then a performer, and discovers--gasp!--there's a whole world of sex and violence involved with these things. Gershon is probably the best element in the film, playing Berkley's bisexual rival for the big spotlight on stage. Joe Eszterhas was well overpaid for writing this howler, and director Paul Verhoeven (Basic Instinct) should have known better than to take it seriously. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Showgirls is about a girl who is desperate to make it as a dancer in Vegas, starting in seedy places and meeting a lot of scuzzy people. Then again, she is no class act, herself. The production values are good but I found the dialog and performances tough to endure. Judging it straight up as a feature film, Showgirls is just bad but I think its primary objective is to be provocative in a sleazy manner. Therefore, the biggest fault of Showgirls is that it's not very sexy. There is lots of sex and nudity but much of it seems anti-erotic. Still, I've seen worse films.

Rated NC-17 (USA), banned in a few countries. Special features has director commentary and some extras including a lap dance tutorial.

Trashy fun. I just love this movie. It's like the ugly musical version of 'All About Eve'. The acting is either truly awful, or just plain over-the-top. But I don't care. Naomi Malone is a sociopathic and ambitious young woman, bent on making her dreams come true. She's selfish, vicious, and angry. Few people lose it over being asked a few personal questions, and after someone has just saved their life.But Nomi manages to be both ungrateful, and irrational to the point it makes your eyes water.

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.

Even though I have seen the movie on video tape and DVD, it was a good movie. Even if I do not agree with other peoples dissaproval, I would think it is wonderful. Perhaps they should have a 3 DVD set. 1 for the NC-17 rating, 2 for the R-Rating and an unrated version.Showgirls

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.

I actually purchased the gift box VIP Edition which is the longest version of this movie I know of, at 131 mins. The IMDB website also lists the longest version of this movie at 131 mins. Can anyone who has purchased this Blu-ray edition verify that it is 166 mins long, or is that just an error?

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.
