The 15th Anniversary Sinsational Edition of the classic '90s softcore porn flick/career-killer Showgirls drops today (just in time for Father's Day!), and while we'll examine the film's "visual aesthetic" at some other time (privately, of course), we're going to give its cultural impact a look. And no, we're not talking about the epic "I'm on my period"-"Yeah, right"-"Check" exchange—we're talking Elizabeth Berkley going from her wholesome Saved by the Bell stardom to having dudes put their hands down her pants to check for menstrual blood.
