February 13, 2001
A film of thunderous oafishness that gives adult subject matter the kind of bad name it does not need or deserve.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
January 1, 2000
One of the worst films of the year.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/4

A waste of a perfectly good NC-17 rating.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

To take Showgirls that seriously (as either trash-art or appalling pornography) wouldn't be worth the exertion.
January 1, 2000
An overcoat movie for men who don't want to be seen going into a porno theater.

Just plain awful.

Sloppy writing and wooden acting remove any sense of class from the production, and what's left is simply an excuse to watch topless dancing.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/4

The story is so shabbily built that it can make no valid claim to motives other than the filmmakers' mercenary desires to cash in on the public's prurient interests.

Showgirls approximates the feeling of someone sleazy putting the make on you. Its brand of sexual harassment makes you feel dirty and not at all flattered.

[The script] is as hoary as it is whore-y, whipping out every backstage cliche as he recycles his Flashdance plot into Trashdance.

Showgirls is fun, pure and simple, as long as you don't take any of it seriously.

Not only is this movie really dumb, but it's barely sexy, and not even close to explicit.
Full Review | Original Score: D

Think of Flashdance but with an unappealing leading lady playing a woman whose fierce ambition is to do something not admirable, just ridiculous.

Verhoeven, a Dutch filmmaker whose early works include the dazzlingly intelligent and anarchic The Fourth Man, has clearly lost his soul in Hollywood.
