Showgirls Reviews

Apr 4, 2022
[Showgirls], which the world condemned utterly, I enjoyed. It moved fast, it looked glossy, and it had a plot. What more can one ask?

Too tacky to have been in any top Vegas feather show.

Perhaps you have been tempted by the hype over this movie's rating to go see what all the fuss is about. Crush that impulse.

The entire picture isn't an exercise in eroticism as much as it's a jumbled series of excuses to have the cast take off their clothes.

This is a camp masterpiece and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Showgirls' Camp influences, even shades of deliberate Camp, aren't so much the film itself but in-universe productions compartmentalizing excess into metatext.

Practically nothing works in this tacky sashay through Valley of the Dolls clichés and unerotic burlesque.

Showgirls would be offensive if it hadn't been hyped ("Leave your inhibitions at the door" winked the US publicity). But it has.

To say this movie is smarmy is to understate the case. To say it stinks is more like it.

The movie is pretty bad, but I prefer it over the other 1995 release written by Showgirls scripter Joe Eszterhas, the truly dismal Jade.

Is it sexy? Not when you're laughing.

Showgirls is a positively detumescent experience.

About dreams. The american dream. The ephemeral. The permanent. Las Vegas. Everything is possible. Everything. Welcome to the show. [Full review in Spanish]

A film so exquisitely made can't possibly be this incompetent, or can it?

What Verhoeven and Eszterhas are doing here is painting a sperm and blood-stained black velvet painting of a festering sore of a world; an empty, black hole that sucks in delusional, naive, men and women, turning them into meat-puppet mulch...

The thin, terrible people of 'Showgirls' are equally loathsome; you don't have a rooting interest in Nomi or her "dream," and as a result, 'Showgirls' is 131 minutes of watching trashy, vapid people being terrible to each other.

It is a long, ambitious and shocking exercise that aims so high - and with such detached logic - that we are driven to watch on in the same manner that eyewitnesses watch on at a train wreck.

Showgirls... is one of those delirious, hilarious botches that could be taught in film schools as a How Not To.

Berkley's acting début is a joy, if you can call it acting: she jumps up and down a lot to indicate excitement.

One thing I'll say for Showgirls, it's educational. But sadly, it isn't much else.
Do you think we mischaracterized a critic's review?
