Everyone who criticized Verhoeven for Showgirls should more than reconsider. How he got a quite nice acting job out of Elizabeth Berkley should make any director proud. I don't want to sound to mean, especially if you consider the material at hand here, but judging from what you see here, you never would have guessed she has it in her to be any (even only by little) better than this.
But it would be unfair to only judge her (even if she is one of the main roles in this, especially considering the title) and not the entire movie. It's just all over the place and predictable does not even start to describe it. And I have to admit that I didn't even notice the one big "blooper" (if you wanna call it that, it's more of a big mistake, which isn't the editors fault as much as the directors and the continuity people on set ... if there were any to begin with that is) that some of the other reviewers noticed, because I was longing for this to end. It's the pool scene towards the end. If you want more info about that, without having to watch the movie, read the other reviews, I won't spoil that.
Black Widows are probably ashamed being associated with this movie ... that would be guess ;o)
