    Hilarious movie. My ex and I would watch it a couple of times a year because it's so fun.

    Showgirls is just soft core porn with extra steps. Actually no, that's being charitable, porn has better acting. Seriously, do yourself a favor and skip Showgirls, no amount of hot naked people could save writing or acting this bad.

    Can't tell if the ways this is massively entertaining are intentional or not so my score is splitting the difference.

    It appears that all the harsh critics are people with a boring sex life. The movie isn't the best thing, narratively, but the scenes are sexy as fuck and worth a watch. Also, the actress did a great job showing how misogyny can be trampled by woman easily.

    Pointless giggling girls showing boobies and reading a less than weak script...i would be hard pressed to pick who was the worst...it was spread across the entire cast

    So awful it crosses over and becomes brilliant. The tasteless dialogue is something to behold. So many one-line gems.

    The single greatest movie ever produced. Perfect, across the board. Zero complaints. The most fulfilling movie watching experience.

    For some reason this movie is already super iconic in the mind. Every movie I've seen in the past 10 years has not compared to this. This movie has all the cringy horrible one liners but their iconic and that's all that matters. Yes this movie is bad but it's like Batman and Robin so I have to give this 5 stars. Would I watch this movie again, of course I will and I'll watch this movie when I'm bored or craving a bad movie like this or Batman and Robin.

    Showgirls is one of those trashy chick-flicks that you invite your college girlfriends over to your house accompanied with jeroboams of wine and champagne. Nomi Malone (Elizabeth Berkley) hitchhikes to Las Vegas where she dreams of becoming an exotic dancer at Stardust Resort. There, she goes through other adventures such as forming a friendship with Molly (Gina Ravera), performing pole dances at the Cheetah, making an unlikely friend with Stardust Goddess Cristel Connors (Gina Gershon), having periods during dance rehearsal, weird crazy sex with Zach Carey (Kyle MacLachlan), pushing Cristel down the stairs, meeting Andrew Carver (William Shockley), Molly's rape and assault, and beating up Andrew Carver. I know this is a movie that continues to show midnight screenings at cult theatres, similar to The Rocky Horror Picture Show or The Adventures of Priscilla: Queen of the Desert. But unlike those movies where they were entertainingly campy and silly, Showgirls does not have that same vibe. Don't get me wrong, it has its unintentionally funny moments, mostly from Berkley's legendary acting caliber. But, the pacing is slow, the writing is exploitive and sexist, certain plot threads go nowhere while others came out of nowhere, and we learn nothing about Nomi (or should I say Polly). All we know is that her parents died in a homicide/suicide, she has an incredible nationwide criminal record and has run away from a foster home in Oakland. However, we know nothing about what inspired her to her career, where she was born, what her childhood was like, how her parent's deaths affected her psychologically or how old she was when they died. I want to say Showgirls is so bad it's good, but, needless to say, it is nothing but a sleazy, boring soap opera. (1 ½ Chimps in Tutus out of 5)
