    Get ready for Agent Cooper ragging Jessie Spano round like a rag doll.

    It's the SPASTIC dance moves that are killing me. I'm fully aware that when I have seen this more times I'll be incorporating the ON POINT jerks into my already tragic dancing repertoire.

    My Top 5 Things About SHOWGIRLS:

    01 'I got it at Ver-says'
    02 Nomi storming out of EVERY SINGLE SCENE she's in.
    03 In the Blu-Ray, the screen ratio lets you see Dame Elizabeth Berkley's full on CUNT mid-highkick during the key leopard print assassin with PILLAR BOX RED NIPPLES scene.
    04 Crystal 'We could have brought anyone into this show;Janet Jackson, PAULA ABDUL' Connors shaving her legs over the sink.
    05 Nomi's SPASTIC DANCING in the club scene. We always reenact her orangutan arms when out.

    LITERALLY the perfect film. Drew Barrymore and that old cunt Madonna could NEVER have done the lead roles justice. I <3 that Gina Gershon went on to FUCK BILL CLINTON.

    THIRDLY any fan needs Joe Eszterhas' book, The Devil's Guide To Hollywood. It's mainly about Sharon Stone being an old whore (WE'RE ALL WHORES DARLIN' etc.)

    The sex in the swimming pool alone warrants a 10!

    I've not seen this in ages. I must dig it out. It sounds like the blu ray is worth a purchase though. :disco:

    It's a 10 from me. I seems almost nondescript in terms of the kind of trash churned out in the 90s, but for some reason it has its own special charisma. It makes no sense, I felt no sympathy for anyone, and it barely had a conclusion. It's above all that.

    Apparently the fan commentary is hilarious. Is it on the DVD or just blu-ray?

    I'd be more interested in a 'Painting the girls nipples at the Stardust in pastel colours' game, personally.

    What an amazing woman. She's like a cross between Angelia Jolie and Aisleyne and not just physically.

    I'm going to start asking myself "what would Nomi do?" in trying situations.

    I hadn't really thought of it before now but I hope the heroine of Sense8 is named in Nomi's honour.

    Amazing.

    I have a friend who I regularly use a Nomi catchphrase on - 'I like having nice tits.'

    There's an arthouse cinema near my house and usually they show silent-era Serbian films about the meaningless of life, preceded by an intellectual analysis of said film.
    Well last year they had a 'Showgirls' evening, which I attended. The bespectacled film historian gave this dreary interpretation of the feminist credentials of Nomi Malone.
    The flm started - and it was amazing to see with an audience.
    The clear fan-favourite was the swimming pool sex scene - the entire cinema was screaming and cheering and clapping.

    Oooh exciting.

    That Jeffrey Schwarz guy who is making the film is the director of the 2014 documentary 'I am Divine' so he has experience and history of class and glamour.

    Promising then. "I Am Divine" is superb!

    I remember the hype this was getting in the US the summer before it opened. Billboards EVERYWHERE and huge buzz for everyone, especially LIZ. Then I went to see it on opening night and knew it was an INSTANT classic.

    This was in the September, so I assume by the time the UK release date came around the word had got around... :D
