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.

Intelligently made by a smart director in full command of his powers.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
July 10, 2010
...a bad film, borderline inept, with an anti-erotic toxic charge about it. It deserved all the mean things people said about it.
Full Review | Original Score: 75/100
June 15, 2010
Beneath the Vegas glitz beats the heart of a cheap B-movie porno in Showgirls, a movie that truly is so bad it's funny.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

Berkley is good. Besides her dancing sizzle, she does what she can with the mechanically viperous character she was given to play.
July 23, 2007
Even the grossest porn is more cheerfully sexual than this movie.

May 26, 2006
The film emerges as a plastic, awkward mess without a hint of eroticism or genuine sexuality (not unlike Jerry Bruckheimer's Coyote Ugly).
August 19, 2004
A bore with nothing much to say about anything and for that matter not much to look at.
Full Review | Original Score: D

So bad, it's fun.
| Original Score: C+

It's great that a critically and publicly lambasted movie gets a special edition [DVD] that gets it.
July 18, 2004
Showgirls is one of the most honest satires of recent years.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4

...despite its rampant sexual material, it is not a sexy film. Dang, this thing couldn't get anything right.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10
January 13, 2004
Tasteless, tawdry, and guaranteed to leave you rolling in the aisles... the best bad filmmaking Hollywood has to offer.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/4
December 26, 2003
One of the most entertaining bad movies of all time.
