Is it sexy? Not when you're laughing.

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.

Berkley is good. Besides her dancing sizzle, she does what she can with the mechanically viperous character she was given to play.

The script -- a generic blend mixing the soap of All About Eve with the suds of Valley of the Dolls -- is replete with the clunkiest dialogue this side of Peyton Place.

A film of thunderous oafishness that gives adult subject matter the kind of bad name it does not need or deserve.

A waste of a perfectly good NC-17 rating.

An overcoat movie for men who don't want to be seen going into a porno theater.

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

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

One of the worst films of the year.

To take Showgirls that seriously (as either trash-art or appalling pornography) wouldn't be worth the exertion.
