NC-17 | | Drama
Nomi, a young drifter, arrives in Las Vegas to become a dancer and soon sets about clawing and pushing her way to become the top of the Vegas showgirls.
Paul Verhoeven originally passed on the project as he didn't care for Joe Eszterhas's original script. Instead, he hoped to make a movie about the Crusades with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Hop in, pard!
Nomi Malone: Where are you going?
Jeff: Vegas! Come on! This is your lucky day!
When Nomi is playing the slots at the beginning of the film, the camera is reflected in one of the machines.
The Indian version was cut by 22 minutes.
