Nomi Malone (Elizabeth Berkeley) is an insanely beautiful girl with a difficult character. She comes to Las Vegas to pursue her dream of becoming a professional dancer. But as often happens, on the very first day she is deceived and robbed. Things don’t go according to plan, so Nomi has to get a job at a local strip club, where she wastes her incredible dancing talent.
But fate gives her a chance, mixing Crystal (Gina Gershon) with one of the most popular dance shows in Las Vegas. Nomi gets the coveted role in the show, but now it will not be easy for her, as she will see show business from the inside with all its intrigues, meanness and deceit.
This flip side of a beautiful and luxurious life will corrupt Nomi, and she herself will become like the Crystal so hated and unloved by her. And in the end, not talent and skill will bring her to the pedestal (which cannot be taken away from her), but the usual meanness, which she was so afraid of.
In general, Paul Verhoeven knows how to shoot erotic scenes beautifully, brightly and without vulgarity. This was demonstrated to them in the scandalous film “Basic Instinct”. But even he did not receive an NC-17 rating, like the picture “Showgirls” (which naturally served as the failure of the latter at the box office).
It is a pity that the film has collected so many “Golden Raspberry” awards. After all, this in no way reflects reality. The movie is very high quality with good actors, amazing choreographic performances and music. Filmed beautifully, in the style of Verhoeven.
