4.0 out of 5 stars Here is what is on this thing... June 29, 2007
Format:DVD
If you previously bought the SHOWGIRLS VIP edition - this is the exact same disc only packaged without the box and all the trinkets that came with that edition. You get commentary by a guy who is a fan of the movie and helps host late night screenings, the Scores girls talk about stripping and critique those sequences, and there's an old promotional piece made during shooting that is called "A Diary". The transfer is good and the extras are fun, though none of them seem to cover anybody associated with the film. If you did not purchase the glam deluxe box set this is a cheap way to get all those features without hunting it down. Otherwise if you have that edition, this is merely a double dip and repackaging of the same disc with new cover art.

This is the NC-17 cut and no additional material has been added. If you have that edition already there is no difference in the movie at all. There are no deleted or extended scenes. This is the version shown in theatres and released twice before on DVD.

SHOWGIRLS begs for better extras. I would love to hear a director's commentary or Elizabeth Berkley and Gina Gershon talk about the film. But that hasn't happened yet. Maybe one day we can hope for a Criterion edition and all the stops will be pulled out!

Every now and then, a film is so bad, so wretched, so devoid of any socially or artistically redeeming value as to take on a life of its own, and by the very denial of value, acquire a value unto itself. So it is with "Showgirls."

This film is well and truly ridiculed by serious film critics, and it's even been lampooned in "The Simpsons". And the other reviews on Amazon.com are so wonderful, I almost despaired to write anything approaching their brilliance. But I felt I had to add something to praise this dubious achievement in film.

The story is, as has been related so many times, of a simple girl with a shady past, Nomi, who hitchhikes to Vegas. Is there, you ask, any OTHER way to get to Vegas? No, indeed. A pretty girl with a great figure and a look of jaw-dropping stupidity (Elizabeth Berkley) should never simply take a bus. Only risking her life in a random encounter with what could be (but wasn't) a homicidal pervert trolling for hitcherhikers is THE way to get to Vegas. Nomi hooks up with a soul sister sewing pal in a trailer and becomes ensnared in star dancer Cristal's web. Don't worry, Cristal gets hers later on.

Nomi manages to climb out of the seedy second-rate strip club, I mean, Vegas show and gets a role in the hot new extravaganza "Goddess." My favorite part of the scene is not the crummy audition. No, it's afterwards, when she trots up to the Human Resources department and feigns not knowing her social security number. She's even rather vague on her date of birth. Her lack of next-of-kin prompts the HR lady to ask "deceased?

5.0 out of 5 stars Bad Bad Movies Don't Get No Better Than This! June 13, 2004
By KNC
Format:DVD
This is the quintessential bad movie. It's so bad it's great! I remember when this movie came out and I believe it was the director's intention to make a serious movie. Well I'm glad it didn't turn out that way. This has to be by far one of the most hilarious movies I've seen. The over-over-overacting by Elizabeth Berkeley is pure comedy and will keep you laughing from the first scene to the last. It's pretty hard to take any of it seriously when scene after scene after scene is just so ridiculous, I.E. the pool sex scene. If one could even call it that...watching that poor gal flop around in the water like that reminded me of a fish out of water fighting for its life. It was great. The dance sequences were great, I must say I enjoyed the dancing. A lot of people say this is a horrible movie and it is, but the key is to not take any of it seriously and just turn your brain off and watch it. You can't help but laugh, I promise. I know when I first saw it years years years ago, I thought it was the worst piece of crap I had seen...then I saw it again and again and it's the movie I watch when I need a damn good laugh. Definitely a must have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Trash, Sure, But Fun Nonetheless April 26, 2000
Format:DVD
First, I must say that I am, truly, a lover of bad movies. (In fact, I ordered "Showgirls" on DVD, the same day I ordered "Plan 9 From Outer Space". So, what does that tell you?) Although "Showgirls" has been shunned by the mainstream public, it has gained quite a bit of fame as a cult classic, such as "Plan 9". "Showgirls" became infamous after being slapped with the dreaded NC-17 rating, the scarlet "A", if you will, of the rating system. Does it deserve it? Sure. It is loaded with T&A for those who want it. But for lovers of cinematic cheese, there is plenty to enjoy, such as bad dialogue and mediocre acting.
Well, finally, "Showgirls" has found it's way to DVD, and it is a pretty good release. It makes up for picture quality and sound where it lacks in special features. (I really wanted an audio commentary, so the director could explain what the hell was going on in his mind when he made it. But, hey, maybe on an upcoming Criterion Version. :-]) But, for people, who enjoyed it for the movie it is, I would recommend it. And, for fans of ridiculous turkeys, I would really recommend it, because it is definitely fun.

Decent movie overall. This movie is nothing great, but its a decent watch. The acting is ok, some of the lines are dumb. "Jesse Spano's" acting is below average. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Cult Classics
There IS a reason why a movie makes it to Cult Classic Status.
All I can advise is to not just to view it but to actually listen to the story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite Paul Verhoeven
"Showgirls" is not Paul Verhoeven's best effort. Some critics called it awful. Perhaps they were anticipating something like "Basic Instinct". Read more
