Back in '95, director Paul Verhoeven dropped the bomb heard 'round the world, better known as Showgirls. In this awesomely bad cult classic, Elizabeth Berkley shed her clothes and the memory of overachiever Jesse Spano in the process. It won seven out of a record 13 Razzies, and even coined the phrase "Showgirls-bad". It was raunchy enough to draw an NC-17 rating, and everything from the plot to the acting is so horrible that you just can't turn away. Still, despite being among one of the worst film's ever made, it's the highest grossing NC-17 movie in North America.
This Movie Monday is one you won't want to miss, not only because of the gratuitous nudity, but for the chance to get free beer and popcorn. That's right, if you get there before 7 p.m., you get free stuff. Getting drunk will make Showgirls even better, and all of you How To Make It In America fans can see Gina Gershon before she reached cougar status. She was cold back then too.
