Product Overview

Seduction, passion and power struggles unfold when the creators of Basic Instinct, director Paul Verhoeven (Starship Troopers) and screenwriter Joe Eszterhas (Original Sin), blow the lid off the seemingly glamorous world of Las Vegas showdancing to create one of the most controversial - and shocking - films of all time. Nomi Malone (Elizabeth Berkley) has what it takes to make it as a Las Vegas showgirl - what she doesn't have is a way in. To survive, she accepts the only job available: lap dancing at a seedy club. And when she meets Cristal (Gina Gershon), Vegas' reigning showgirl, Nomi wants everything she has - including her boyfriend (Kyle MacLachlan). And as Nomi dives deeper into the world she so desperately desires, a rivalry between the two women heats up. The battle for the spotlight becomes so fiercely competitive that it drives Nomi to desperate lengths - and devious heights - for fame in Sin City.

ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review Only in cinema can a bad movie actually be good because of it. Showgirls, for better or worse, is one of these movies...Director Paul Verhoeven (Hollow Man, Basic Instinct, RoboCop) and screenwriter Joe Eszterhas (Basic Instinct, Flashdance, Jagged Edge) collaborated yet again on the 1995 film Showgirls, which got a lot of press because of the recently adopted NC-17 rating it was branded with. While this pairing of writer and director has produced films with impact and energy before, with Showgirls, the elements never really came together...Amid this, however, Showgirls has also achieved fairly solid cult status as a genre hit favored for the wealth of character actors that make appearances...There are some interesting performances buried in the flick, and some great lines. There's also quite a bit of skin, which can have its own appeal to some audience members. Fun for everyone.

Review The only positive thing there is to say about "Showgirls" is that the sensibility of the film perfectly matches that of its milieu. Impossibly vulgar, tawdry and coarse, this much-touted major studio splash into NC-17 waters is akin to being keelhauled through a cesspool, with sharks swimming alongside...Yes, the picture is awash in nudity, but crudity is more the operative word. Virtually all the human exchanges in the film are sexualized in some debasing manner, and these are between people who in every other way don't even like each other. "Sell, sell your bodies," the show producer shouts at his dancers, and sex-as-commodity is definitely the overriding theme here, for no one more than the filmmakers...Verhoeven has directed many hot sequences in his career, but none of them are in this film, which just flaunts sex without eroticizing it. The film, like Vegas, is just about the Big Sell...Tech contributions are suitably gaudy and ostentatious.
