Yet another vote for ’it’s so bad, you have to watch it.’ I would say it’s the worst movie I remember seeing in a long time, but I had the unfortunate experience of viewing Paul Blart: Mall Cop not too long ago. Unlike that film though, Showgirls does have that “It’s horrid but I can’t take my eyes off it” factor, and it’s not just the luke-warm porn thing it’s got going on. What truly made this movie fascinating was watching the super-mega-extreme acting display put on by many of the actors, particularly the lead, Elizabeth Berkley. I truly felt her pain…or maybe that was just genuinely my pain. I now remove my tongue from my cheek and sincerely recommend watching this if you’re into the funniest damn movies that weren’t trying to be funny. This one is hilarious. Oh, yeah…and there’s boobies…lots of boobies.
