Paul Verhoeven's American erotic drama Showgirls (1995) is a curious phenomenon. The critics dubbed the production one of the worst films of its era. Showgirls "won" at the 1996 Razzie Awards for Worst Picture, Worst Director, Worst Screenplay, Worst Leading Actor (Elizabeth Berkley), Worst Female Newcomer (Berkley), and Worst Picture Couple as well as Worst Original Movie Song. Verhoeven was the first celebrity ever who came to receive his Razzies. In the years after its original release, Showgirls gained cult status, grossed over $100,000,000 on rentals, and made it into MGM's top 20 best-selling titles. And in recent years, the film has been subject to critical re-evaluation, with more and more notable directors and critics considering it a serious satire worthy of praise.

Elizabeth Berkley plays Nomi, a "street-smart" drifter who ventures to Las Vegas. She is determined to make a name as a dancer while putting her unspoken past behind her. Her tough, streetwise veneer is not as infallible as she would like. In Vegas, she becomes more cautious in the way she approaches strangers who seem willing to help her purely out of the goodness of their hearts. Her talent and connections in combination are only able to get her a job at the Cheetah Club, a strip joint. Her first true friend in Vegas, Molly Abrams (Gina Ravera), works as the costumer for Goddess, the topless production at the Stardust. It is through Molly that Nomi catches the eye of Goddess' headliner, Cristal Connors (Gina Gershon). Nomi has a love/hate feeling toward Cristal: she doesn't much like her but wants to become her.

At IMDb, the film's got a 4.9 rating but most of the more recent reviews of Showgirls are remarkably positive about the film. "Read between the lines!", "A Misunderstood Classic", "A really fun movie...despite what the critics say!", "This wonderful film only gets better with each viewing" and "Greatest critique of American culture since CITIZEN KANE" are some of the headlines of the IMDb reviews. Critics such as Jonathan Rosenbaum and Jim Hoberman, as well as filmmakers Jim Jarmusch, Adam McKay, and Jacques Rivette, have also gone on the record defending Showgirls as a serious satire. In a 1998 interview, Rivette called it "one of the great American films of the last few years", though "very unpleasant: it's about surviving in a world populated by assholes, and that's Verhoeven's philosophy". Quentin Tarantino has stated that he enjoyed Showgirls, referring to it in 1996 as the "only ... other time in the last twenty years [that] a major studio made a full-on, gigantic, big-budget exploitation movie", comparing it to Mandingo. Showgirls has been compared to All About Eve (1950) as a remake, update, or rip-off of that film. For Jonathan Rosenbaum, "Showgirls has to be one of the most vitriolic allegories about Hollywood and selling out ever made". "Verhoeven may be the bravest and most assured satirist in Hollywood, insofar as he succeeds in making big genre movies no one knows whether to take seriously or not", Michael Atkinson has written.

In Slant Magazine's four-out-of-four-star review, Eric Henderson rejects the "so-bad-it's-good" interpretation and lauds the film as "one of the most honest satires of recent years", stating that the film targets Hollywood's "morally bankrupt star-is-born tales." Henderson draws from a round-table discussion in Film Quarterly in which others argue its merits. NoŽl Burch attests that the film "takes mass culture seriously, as a site of both fascination and struggle" and uses melodrama as "an excellent vehicle for social criticism." In the same round-table, Chon Noriega suggests that the film has been misinterpreted and the satire overlooked because "the film lacks the usual coordinates and signposts for a critique of human vice and folly provided by sarcasm, irony, and caustic wit." The Guardian commented in 2020: "With Showgirls, the target was the American dream itself ? and the dishonest "star is born? narratives churned out to sustain it. If Showgirls has a message, it?s that the game is rigged for women like Nomi. She thinks she?s climbing the pole but really she?s just spinning round it. The real power lies with the men running the racket. Nobody wanted to hear that at the time; maybe they?re ready to now. In its own messy way, Showgirls is a #MeToo story with a male gaze.
