Everybody Wish Showgirls a Happy 15th Birthday!
It all started in the early '90s, when the Basic Instinct brain trust of Paul Verhoeven and Joe Eszterhas went one step further in movie smutdom and Elizabeth Berkley sought to shed Saved By the Bell. From those humble, horny beginnings, Showgirls was conceived and finally born 15 years ago today -- a bouncing baby camp classic.
Life as we knew it would never be the same. Enjoy one of the few clips (i.e. barely SFW) I can actually place here, plus video of Berkley's vintage entrance interview. And of course don't forget to revisit Verhoeven's historic Movieline Interview from 1995 for his trenchant stories from behind the scenes (e.g. "I love to look at naked girls. I love tits and ass. Mostly tits"). Happy 15th, Showgirls!
