Showgirls 2: Penny's from Heaven is written by, directed by, and stars Rena Riffel-- she played Penny in Showgirls. Somehow, Rena managed to get several Showgirls cast members together for this sequel which I would call a spoof-quel. The returning cast members are the people who played James (he's the guy who gave Nomi's dance to Penny), Jeff (the guy who steals Nomi's luggage / gives her the ride to Vegas), and Phil Newkirk (the one who got yelled at because of the whole "Caesar sing" shenanigan). Also in the cast is Peter Stickles (while not from Showgirls, he has been in The Lair and Shortbus).

Those who love the original Showgirls (those who go to the midnight screenings, laugh their heads off, applaud and cheer at the pool scene, yell out "different places," or bust a gut anytime Nomi hits anything) will definitely enjoy this endeavor helmed by Rena Riffel.

There is one caveat: it is not Showgirls. The cinematography, visuals, sound, and sleekness of the Showgirls 2 is incredibly... different from Showgirls. Showgirls 2 was made direct to video, and most likely on a very small budget. It looks like a very well-made student film, but in a way it adds to the fun, the humor, and the charm of Showgirls 2.

So, as long as you love the original Showgirls, this will make for a great viewing with a group of friends. Pop some popcorn, get ready for some thigh-slapping lines (this movie was really well-written, kudos are definitely deserved here), and enjoy a trip that many of us thought we'd never get to on: a trip back to see one of our favorite showgirls in action once again.

Five Stars all the way!

I love campy flicks and adore showgirls, but this isn't even enjoyable. Bad acting (I mean BAD), bad camera work, bad sound (you seriously can't hear what people are saying sometimes), AND it felt like it was 100 hours long. After reading a review about how awesome this movie was, I can't believe I wasted money on this trash.

This movie might have pulled off what it was trying to do (be a spoof of the un-spoofable original "Showgirls") if it were only about an hour or so shorter. It's bad, but worth seeing if you have the endurance (I like bad movies if I'm in the mood). It's production value is slightly higher than the first "Birdemic" movie. Can only give it two stars for trying, but it's not for the faint of heart.

This was pretty much awful. Nothing at all like the original Showgirls movie. Lousy plot, lousy writing, lousy directing, lousy film quality. I can't even imagine how they were able to co-op the name.

Was not as good as I hoped. Rea Riffel had better dance scenes in first movie. Should have danced more freely.

No plot, no production value, cheaply made, nothing like the original. Save your time and money and get something else.

I rented this thinking it would be a continuation of The original Showgirls Hit Movie
it was a major let down the story started out ok but it had a very Cheesy B rated Porno Feel to it
the story line looked like one of those cheap HBO late night special movies and the story line
further degraded itself as the movie progressed I would not reccomend this movie to others.
