55. Showgirls with special guest Dan Renzi

Somebody get me some brown rice, vegetables and a bottle of Evian!  We watched Showgirls (1995) with special guest Dan Renzi (The Real World, The Challenge) and all we want is a burger, fries and a soda.  People proclaim Showgirls to be the “best worst movie” but our friend Dan is here to tell you you’re half wrong.  We hash out why Showgirls is actually a solid piece of cinema in spite of and in some cases because of it’s over the top acting, insane script and explicit nudity.  Name another NC-17 movie with a wide release (or shall we say - big opening?).  We talk the high points of Nomi (Elizabeth Berkley) and Cristal’s (Gina Gershon) chemistry, the low points of Mama Bazoom’s (Lin Tucci) weird dialogue and the pointless (Showgirls 2: Penny’s from Heaven).  We are unapologetic fans of this movie and it can only be summed up in the words of Nomi Malone herself: “It doesn’t suck.” Thanks for listening and don’t forget to subscribe, rate and review us on iTunes!
