A classic rags-to-riches story. Kinda? Nomi Malone (Elizabeth Berkley) winds up in Las Vegas and meets sharp-talking Cristal Connors (Gina Gershon), the star of the topless show at Stardust Casino. After an eventful first impression, Connors takes her boyfriend Zack (Kyle MacLachlan, what are you doing in this?) to Cheetah’s, the titty bar Nomi works at and requests a lapdance. As you might imagine, it’s all downhill and very complicated from there. There’s a lot of nudity, a lot of ‘dancing’, a lot of truly bitchy one-liners, a lot of nipple talk (seriously, like, a lot), drugs, jail, feather boas, trips down the stairs and the greatest EVER sex-in-the-pool scene (WTF). If you haven’t seen this in a cinema full of other guffawing people, you simply haven’t seen it.
Why should you see this film?
Is this film a joke? Was everyone in on it except for Elizabeth Berkley? Was this film Berkley’s Wrecking Ball? A desperate attempt to shed her goody-two-shoes Saved By the Bell reputation? Is this film a travesty OR is this actually a masterpiece about greed, ambition and human desire? We’ll never know, but we’re so happy to present it for you.
