A chorus of film critics and fervent devotees explore the complicated afterlife of 1995’s biggest film flop, Paul Verhoeven's salacious Showgirls, from disastrous release to cult adoration and extraordinary redemption. The film features Adam Nayman (Vice Guide to Film), April Kidwell (I, Nomi) and Peaches Christ (Milk) along with archive interview footage with the cast and crew of Showgirls.

"Even if you aren't a fan of SHOWGIRLS - especially if you aren't - Jeffrey McHale's thoughtfully constructed documentary is a joy to watch." - JimmyO, JoBlo's Movie Network

"The most thoughtful deconstruction of a film imaginable." - FILM FORWARD

"An exhilarating, madcap cine-essay."- VULTURE

"Almost as entertaining as Showgirls itself." - JEZEBEL
