What lengths will a drifter-turned-stripper-turned-showgirl go to achieve her dreams of Vegas stardom?

To know this film is to love this film. What is it that can be said about Paul Verhoeven’s Showgirls except that it is probably one of the most memorable films to come out of the 1990s. Elizabeth Berkley (from Saved by the Bell fame) plays Nomi, a young dancer who moved to Las Vegas to make it big. She gets her chance and trips, claws, and sleeps her way to the top only to discover that there’s a heart underneath that stripper facade. Gina Gershon is magical as the “aging” and manipulative Cristol Conner while Kyle MacLachlan moves from Lynch-weird to Verhoeven-weird status. You know what I mean.
