    Well everyone's picking films that will inevitably scored high by most, so....

    Anyways, I personally think this is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen in my life, albeit unintentionally. What possessed them to cast Elizabeth Berkeley, who really isn't sexy at all, and her sex faces, MY GOD!

    Not quite 10/10- "Supergirl" gets THAT award- but it's FUCKING GREAT

    FABULOUS

    Only let down by the really rather nasty rape scene

    When I saw it in my teenage years I'd never seen so much nudity in a commercial film... and as a result I thought it was great, haven't seen it since then mind!

    This was on Channel 5 last night. I can't believe I watched it all.

    "I like having nice tits"

    "How do you like having them?"

    :D

    Which is cut to shreds in the UK! I downloaded the uncut version, it's pretty gruesome, but no worse than Death Wish 2 etc

    I've not seen this but my mate, who was a horny heterosexual teen at the time, said that even he was begging the cast to put their TITS back IN.

    I think it may well be the all time Razzie record holder. It almost ruined Jessie Spano's career. She's a good dancer, think she's more respected on Broadway now, but she was so bad in it, it made Madonna look like Meryl Streep.

    I was flipping through the channels one night, and it was a total fluke and I watched a couple minutes of it and I was HOOKED, and ended up watching the whole film. :disco:

    Oh, do! I always watch it when I fancy a laugh. I especially love that the US Special Edition version comes with special shot glasses so you can play the drinking game along with it.

    I saw this for the first time last night and it's actually ASTONISHING. Everything about the lack of irony in this film is SHOCKING. And THAT swimming pool sex scene. Both metaphorically and actually, this film is the TITS.

    I'll have to buy it and make someone watch it with me. It seems like it would be a good film for having a bottle of wine to before heading out.

    I STILL haven't seen this. Maybe it can be my reward if I'm still alive after my exams.

    A Glasgow moopy-meet has to be based around watching this I feel.

    I always love the story that Dannii, at the height of her WHORE phase, was going to star in the musical version of Showgirls. Someone actually NEEDS to bring Goddess to the stage.

    The IMDB trivia for this film is ESSENTIAL reading.

    I never read the news on here, I just found out it's on tonight!

    Although, just to be extra tragic, I'll be watching it with my mum.

    You can RE-ENACT scenes from it together. You can be Jessie Spano and your mum can be the old one with the funny teeth. Now tell her to get her top off.

    The ultimate line has to be:

    "I like..NICE TITS"
    "I like having...NICE TITS"

    That, and the ridiculous simulation of sex between Kyle and Elizabeth in the swimming pool.

    I've. Just. Seen. This.

    If my mother wasn't in the room I'd be re-winding this over and over again. The champagne finger flick was also amazing.
