In this campy cult classic, carefree Nomi arrives in Las Vegas with ambitions of leaving her troubled past behind her to become a dancer. As she delves deeper into the world she desires, some new troubles arise.

"You can’t engineer cult status, but Showgirls accidentally hit upon the perfect formula: big budget yet inherently trashy premise; quotably absurd dialogue (“It must be weird not having anybody cum on you”); ridiculous characters; lavish musical numbers; salacious yet utterly unsexy nudity; and showbiz melodrama played dead straight" Steve Rose in The Guardian
