Perhaps you’ve caught replays of the original Showgirls (I cannot believe I just typed that phrase, “the original Showgirls“) on VH1, because apparently no one saw it in the theaters.
In the years since it tanked spectacularly, arguably taking Elizabeth Berkeley’s career into the fiery depths of cinema hell with it, the movie has become a bit of a “so bad it’s good” cult thing- like something you watch at 3:30 in the morning when you’re too drunk to safely make it to the remote and because there’s boobs. And it has Kyle McLachlan, before he started playing neutered men on lady-shows. So there’s that.
Apparently (and I really, really would be surprised if this wasn’t a lame stab at humor) there’s a sequel to Showgirls. No, really, I’m not even kidding. There’s a website, and a full screen trailer, and the absolute most amazingly worst acting and general other movie stuff I’ve ever seen in the history of ever. This makes Boondock Saints look like Schindler’s List, and Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day look like a speech by Winston Churchhill.
The trailer (and I use that word loosely, it actually seems to be a bunch of random three second clips, and is highly NSFW) is below, but you really should get the full-screen experience by going to Showgirls2.com.
