We follow Nomi, a pretty young drifter, who pulls into Vegas where she fights her way to the top of of the celebrated showgirls.
With a little more imagination if might have been a fascinating study but instead the dialogue, characters and acting, all of which are shitty, wraps itself around this tediously plotted sludge. Verhoeven calls it another one of his satirical films (ie. Starship Troopers, Robocop) but the witty sarcasm is completely buried underneath it's weak attempt at being a trashy exploitation film. In the end it seems as nobody working on the film was on the same page and it shows in all the worst ways.
