Showgirls' provocative poster, like its titular subject, should have viewers aching to see beyond its teasers. However, considering the films 14% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and seven nominations for 1995 Golden Raspberry awards, viewers hardly have their dollar bills out to throw at this movie. The final movie is a disappointment, but it keeps cult viewers coming back nonetheless. Its supporters have commended the movie as admirably daring, and its poster certainly speaks to that quality. The screenplay quality is as skimpy as the posters showgirl, the onscreen romance as blank and flat as the black poster background. Though the poster is a creative use of space and an enticing attention-grabber, Showgirls curtains are better left closed.
