Pretty Bland Promotional Piece
28 January 2013 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

The Making of 'Showgirls' (1995)

** (out of 4)

This five-minute promotional piece is pretty worthless as we have a narrator trying to push the movie as being something serious and dark. Of course, we all know how the actual movie turned out. It's too bad there wasn't more to this thing because it does remain slightly interesting hearing people talk about the film with very high expectations. When people discuss it now it's as a joke so I actually would have enjoyed hearing more of the people trying to sell the film as something that it's clearly not. Paul Verhoeven, Joe Eszterhas, Elizabeth Berkley, Gina Gershon and Kyle MacLachlan are all interviews in very quick segments. Again, at just five-minutes this thing isn't long enough to really draw one into the picture and the interviews are certainly too short to give anyone any real information of what the people think. This is certainly a complete waste of time that only die hards need to worry about.
