Showgirls (1995)

30 worst movies of the ‘80s, ‘90s, and 2000s 16

Written by Joe Eszterhas and directed by Paul Verhoeven, Showgirls is another film about stripping that ended up being a complete disaster. The movie stars Elizabeth Berkley as Nomi Malone, a street-smart drifter who ventures to Las Vegas and climbs the seedy hierarchy from stripper to showgirl. Rotten Tomatoes’ critic consensus calls the film “vile, contemptible, garish, and misogynistic – and that might just be exactly Showgirls’ point.” Roger Ebert shared similar sentiments, describing the movie a “sleaze fest” that only presents “Eszterhas’ masturbatory fantasies.”
