Nomi (Elizabeth Berkley) arrives in Las Vegas with only a suitcase and a dream of becoming a top showgirl. She quickly befriends Molly (Gina Ravera), who works at the high-profile Stardust Hotel, and lands a job at a seedy strip club. A chance meeting with Cristal (Gina Gershon), the Stardust's marquee dancer, and her powerful boyfriend, Zack (Kyle MacLachlan), brings Nomi one step closer to realizing her dream. But, as she ascends to the top, Nomi begins to wonder if it's all worth it.
One of the most notorious box office bombs, it was the film’s star Elizabeth Berkley who was instantly cancelled when Showgirls was panned upon release. Showgirls is a satirical exploitation film from Paul Verhoeven, the follow-up to his wildly successful thriller Basic Instinct.
