  1. dionysus67's rating of the film Showgirls

    Rescued in terms of the exuberant and volcanic set design, Verhoeven's exploration of the female body as a magmatic force against societal cannibalisms of sorts affirms the former but also, guiltlessly, the latter to which this film belongs. Berkley's reptilian body is given full reign in twists, splits and roundhouse kicks, but the overall message is sensationalist and thoroughly voyeurist. Sadly, cheap thrills.

  2. Traum Baum's rating of the film Showgirls

    It's bad, over-the-top, corny, tacky and tasteless just because it's supposed to be. Just because it reinforces the same sleaziness it criticizes. It's self-aware camp. But... that doesn't necessarily make it a good satire. Nor a good film. Far from the unsung masterpiece some make it out to be.

  3. Leon Blank's rating of the film Showgirls

    No surprise that this was directed by a European. Like Ace in the Hole its so caustic and cynical about America, yet so enthralled by the vulgarity of it all. The hitchhiking scenes which bookend the film make it feel like a fantasy descent into some bizarre land of excess. The design is brilliant. It also recalls Fassbinder in its melodramatic depiction of the dynamics of exploitation. Endlessly entertaining.

  4. Francisco Real's rating of the film Showgirls

    Es una sátira interesante, excesiva en su ejecución. Su estilo directo, vulgar, asqueante derrumba cualquier corrección política y desnuda la ambición desbordante y el modo de vida salvaje del mundo del espectáculo.

  5. Carlos Pineda's rating of the film Showgirls

    (3.5) Un filme con un metraje excesivo para un argumento tan obvio...quizàs Verhoeven estè sobredimensionado a causa de Bajos Instintos, puesto que recurre a los lugares màs comunes de cada personaje. Màs allà de una estupidizaciòn del personaje principal en la primera media hora, lo demàs es predecible y muchas veces, inverosìmil. Las Vegas en el cine solo se cuenta desde los excesos, esta no era la excepciòn.

  6. Carlett Decker's rating of the film Showgirls

    Torn between it's so bad that it's good or it's just plain bad. Interesting depiction about the twisted (and very much real) path to follow to achieved the "American Dream". At the end of the day, no, it's not a masterpiece that's been "misunderstood". However it's interesting to watch a strong female at the center of the film. besides being unapologetic in its depiction of female sexuality, lust and greed.

  10. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Showgirls

    2-3. I see the issues, but it really is a focused abstraction of and critique of Americana.

  14. Isaac's rating of the film Showgirls

    A superprodução mais difícil de Hollywood. Sem utilizar os caminhos usuais que indicam uma sátira, como o sarcasmo, ironia e humor ácido, Verhoenve nos brinda com outra obra que seria melhor apreciado depois de sua época de lançamento. Uma crítica social feroz das indústrias do entretenimento e do sexo (e suas ligações) e dos vícios humanos. Difícil saber se é realmente um ótimo filme, ou um "tão ruim que é bom".

  15. Frank Eduardo's rating of the film Showgirls

    Sus escenarios, el ambiente, los colores, Las Vegas, todo se conjuga para formar esta increíble película sobre la corporalidad femenina y el baile.

    Espectacular película!!! pero...qué se vayan todos...qué civilización podrida hicimos! no se salva nadie.

  19. TheCinemaAdventurist's rating of the film Showgirls

    I honestly don't know what to rate this one.

  20. NICOLE86's rating of the film Showgirls

    This film has to be a satire on campy erotic films. No "serious" film would have their two actresses bonding over their favorite childhood snack of Alpo. Also, the erotic scenes are laughable and not even sensual at all.

  22. Miguel's rating of the film Showgirls

    It’s a dumb movie. I get what it tries to say, but it never quite sticks the landing

  23. Adolfo Sierra's rating of the film Showgirls

    Nada más que un cuento de hadas que sale mal, narrado muy en el estilo y estética de Verhoeven con pésimas actuaciones, un gusto culpable de muchos adolescentes noventeros.
