Storyline

Las Vegas stripper, Penny Slot (Rena Riffel), sets out on an adventure to become the star dancer on a dance television show. With stars in her eyes, she tries to find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow but instead finds danger in a town more wicked than Sin City. Romance then leads her down a path towards her dream of stardom, fame, and fortune. But danger lurks at every twist and turn while Penny Slot becomes lured by a dangerous love triangle full of temptation and seduction. Penny's longtime fiancé/boyfriend, James "Jimmy" Smith ('Glenn Plummer') warns her that she needs formal technique training if she wants to be taken seriously as a real dancer, so Penny heeds his advice and sets out to take ballet classes and practices her pique turns. But, she must pay the price. And there is a price to pay for success, sacrifices to be made at every imaginable level, and it all comes down to... How bad do you want it? Written by Film Company

Fails as a sequel, and mostly awkward as a parody of a satire
14 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Where do you even begin with this? Porn-quality acting, basically no plot, shoddy camera-work, etc. However, there is a sly sense of humor running through it, particularly in Rena Riffel's character Penny. She has some of the funniest dialogue in the movie, although the movie is rather painful to sit through. Some scenes just go on for too long, and the conversations are pretty ridiculous and go nowhere. And the sex scenes/nudity are even less erotic/sexy than they were in the original Showgirls (which is referenced several times). Ultimately, it is worth at least one viewing, but preferably with other people so you can collectively laugh at how bad it is.
