"Why did you choose this product?"
I really wanted 4 1/2 stars. I saw the picture I the theater when it came out and I liked it then, too. If you don't have any problems with nudity, this DVD is for you. I think if this movie came out today, it would get an R rating. Elizabeth Berkley is an excellent dancer as are the others in this movie. Since I have never been to Las Vegas, I don't know how real to life the story is....
Showgirls Fully Exposed Edition (DVD)
ITEM#: 10716071High-strung, statuesque Nomi Mallone (Elizabeth Berkely) is determined to be a dancer in Las Vegas, whatever it takes--but she starts out as a stripper. Through her seamstress roommate (Gina Ravera), Nomi catches the attention of the voracious bisexual Cristal (Gina Gershon), star of an extravagant pagan sex show called "Goddess" which plays nightly at the swanky Stardust Casino. Through Cristal's influence, Nomi gets a chance to audition for "Goddess" and is soon involved in all sorts of sordid backstage goings-on, including bitchy dueling with Cristal over Stardust head honcho Zack (Kyle McLachlan). Maligned by many critics upon its original release, SHOWGIRLS has since become a true camp classic, revived for midnight showings and beloved for its decadence, high nudity yield, and outrageously catty dialogue (courtesy of screenwriter Joe Eszterhas). Its director is Paul Verhoeven (ROBOCOP, TOTAL RECALL), so one can safely assume SHOWGIRLS' over-the-top hostility and sexuality is meant to be a satire of American culture. One of the first big-budget Hollywood movies to be released with an NC-17 rating, its lack of box office success meant few others would have the guts to follow.

I fully enjoyed this movie. Nothing about it was disappointing. I was also pleased with the speed of delivery.Read More
It is raunchy all the way to the full-frontal-nudity-core. Naomi, the lead character, gets so many unrealistic breaks for a runaway-prostitute-who by the way-dances like crazy! She is voluptuous and seductive to all around her. Everyone, man and woman, want her, DESIRE HER. She is an amazing stripper-showgirl dancer who works at the best strip club making the best and most tips and ends up the lead showgirl she envisioned she could be at the beginning of the movie. “Wouldn’t Mama be proud?” Just a tacky horribly written script put to film. The nudity, exotic dancing, and intimate scenes were over acted and overtly pornographic. Yes, you see all the girl-on-girl action you can desire and it is all nude. Would I recommend this movie to a friend? “No.” Would I ask, “Do you remember the movie “Showgirls”?” And if so, trash its vulgarity and horrible writing. The best part of the movie is the resident actors and actresses we already know and continue to see. Of course, they all kept their panties up.Read More
