"You are such a bitch."
(After his girlfriend has bought him a lapdance with our heroine.)
Showgirls is one one of the most universally panned movies of the nineties. Everybody hates it, or laughs at it.
Frankly, I don't know why. Or rather, I do know why, and it is not because it is bad. OK, granted, it is pretty bad when you consider some of the acting, and most of the story. But how many movies is this not true for? Certainly it is no worse than most action flicks, and you don't see Jean-Claude van Damme being drop-kicked all over Hollywood.
The thing is that this film is obviously eye candy. And today you cannot be politically correct and not attack something like that. I notice that it moved straight to the third place nationally when it came out on video, and that it has an average rank of four out of fives stars with the audience at Amazon. Critics; can't live with them.
See it for the girls. What girls! They can even move. Elizabeth Berkley's moves are smoking sexy.
And that's all I have to say about that... (Lahf is lahk a box of chokolates.)
Favorite quote: (Uh, there was dialogue in this film too?)
Elizabeth Berkley's fantastic, slim frame.
