Always a more interesting acting exercise than compelling drama.

There's a lot of tepid exotic dancing as the girls' writhe and slither around the pole.

After a full hour of Iguana I was watching the DVD counter tick by in slow motion.

Too often the uneven script is either hopelessly strained or tediously lackadaisical.

The film's a mess, albeit a fascinating one.

This, I suppose, is what happens when a director allows his actors to put together a movie -- it's sort of like letting the inmates run the asylum.

A predictable exercise in fake tawdriness and half-nude psychodrama.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

The result is a very believable strip club, inhabited by cardboard-thin protagonists who come across as caricatures more than actual people.

More than anything, Dancing at the Blue Iguana is an acting showcase that allows its stars to strut their emotional range.

Mostly this is a whole lot of chain-smoking and griping about men. You'd be better off renting Demi Moore's Striptease.

Even if Dancing at the Blue Iguana can't rise to the level of the performances of Hannah, Oh and others, it is nonetheless engaging, not without humor and an aura of authenticity.

A beautifully downbeat view of the dancers and their coworkers' as they spiral lower and lower.
October 18, 2001
Contains striking moments, but never coheres.

Showgirls is, of course, the gold standard of the genre, so rigorously deranged it approached perfection. This one is the aluminum standard.
October 18, 2001
The strippers each fit into nice clearly delineated archetypes (a function of most strippers' personas, but one you don't expect to be as well defined in their real lives).
