Nomi wants to report the assault to the police, but Zack tells her the Stardust will bribe Molly with hush money to protect Carver, their star performer.
Zack then confronts Nomi about her sordid past: Her real name is Polly, and she became a runaway and prostitute after her parents' murder-suicide.
She has been arrested several times for drug possession, prostitution, and assault with a deadly weapon. Zack blackmails Nomi by vowing to keep her past quiet if she will not tell the police about the assault.
Unable to obtain justice for Molly without exposing her past, Nomi decides to take justice into her own hands. She gets Carver alone in his hotel room and beats him severely.
Nomi then pays two hospital visits, one to Molly to let her know that Carver's actions did not go unpunished, and another to Cristal to apologize for injuring her.
Cristal admits she pulled a similar stunt years ago. Because her lawyers secure her a large cash settlement, Cristal forgives Nomi, and they exchange a kiss.
Nomi leaves Las Vegas and hitches a ride to Los Angeles, coincidentally with the same driver who stole her possessions when she arrived, whom she robs at knifepoint.
Eszterhas came up with the idea for Showgirls while on vacation at his home in Maui , Hawaii. This, along with the scripts for both Verhoeven's previous film Basic Instinct and Sliver , also an erotic thriller starring Sharon Stone , made Eszterhas the highest-paid screenwriter in Hollywood history.
Madonna , Sharon Stone , Sean Young , Daryl Hannah , and Finola Hughes who allegedly turned down the script because she thought it was sexist were considered for the part of Cristal Connors before Gina Gershon became available.
MacLachlan recalled, "That was a decision that was sort of a tough one to make, but I was enchanted with Paul Verhoeven.
Particularly Robocop , which I loved It was Verhoeven and Eszterhas, and it seemed like it was going to be kind of dark and edgy and disturbing and real.
Eszterhas and Verhoeven interviewed over Las Vegas strippers, and incorporated parts of their stories in the screenplay to show the amount of exploitation of strippers in Vegas.
The film's stark poster was adapted from a photograph by Tono Stano. The photo had originally been featured on the cover of the book The Body: Photographs of the Human Form.
Clearly we made mistakes. Clearly it was one of the biggest failures of our time. It failed commercially, critically, it failed on videotape, it failed internationally.
In retrospect, part of it was that Paul and I were coming off of Basic , which defied the critics and was a huge success.
Maybe there was a certain hubris involved: "We can do what we want to do, go as far out there as we want. In retrospect, a terrible mistake.
And musically it was eminently forgettable. And in casting mistakes were made. I was absolutely gobsmacked. I said, "This is horrible.
And I was like, "Wow. That was crazy. So at that point, I distanced myself from the movie. Now, of course, it has a whole other life as a sort of inadvertent… satire.
No, "satire" isn't the right word. But it's inadvertently funny. So it's found its place. It provides entertainment, though not in the way I think it was originally intended.
It was just… maybe the wrong material with the wrong director and the wrong cast. The website's critics consensus reads: "Vile, contemptible, garish, and misogynistic — and that might just be exactly Showgirls ' point.
Roger Ebert , following a relatively lukewarm review 2 stars out of 4 , wrote that Showgirls received "some bad reviews, but it wasn't completely terrible".
Verhoeven gamely appeared in person at the Razzies ceremony to accept his award for Worst Director; Showgirls would later win an eighth Razzie Award for Worst Picture of the Last Decade in It was soon tied with Battlefield Earth for winning the most Razzies in a single year, a record broken when I Know Who Killed Me won eight trophies in and then again when Jack and Jill won 10 awards in Of the three, its only win was for Worst Picture.
Due to Showgirls ' poor reception, Striptease , a film about nude dancers starring Demi Moore , was distanced from Showgirls in advertisements;  Striptease nonetheless won the next year's Razzie Award for Worst Picture.
The term " Showgirls -bad" has been adopted by film critics and fans to refer to films considered guilty pleasures , or "so-bad-they're-good".
I walked out after 45 minutes. The screen went dead every time that woman was on it. Elizabeth Berkley was dropped by her agent Mike Menchel following the film's release.
Other agents refused to take her telephone calls. Showgirls has achieved cult status. According to writer Naomi Klein , ironic enjoyment of the film initially arose among those with the video before MGM capitalized on the idea.
MGM noticed the video was performing well because "trendy twenty-somethings were throwing Showgirls irony parties, laughing sardonically at the implausibly poor screenplay and shrieking with horror at the aerobic sexual encounters".
It is heralded as one of the best "bad movies", a camp classic in the vein of Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.
We went through the script line by line, and we were really laughing at some of it. I defy people to tell me that a line like, 'How does it feel not to have anybody coming on you anymore' isn't meant to be funny.

Sie ahnt, wodurch Connors zu Fall gekommen ist, und spricht dies unter vier Augen offen aus. Nomi bestreitet den Vorwurf und beschwört ihre Freundin, doch zu kommen.
Dass Molly letztlich einlenkt, liegt auch daran, dass sie hofft, ihrem Idol, dem Musiker Andrew Carver, zu begegnen. In der Tat wird sie von ihm empfangen — und brutal missbraucht: Carver schlägt sie nieder und lässt sie von seinen Bodyguards vergewaltigen.
Nomi ist entsetzt und nicht bereit hinzunehmen, dass die Täter gedeckt werden sollen. Nomi lässt sich nicht erpressen und übt Selbstjustiz.
Unter Vortäuschung sexueller Avancen düpiert sie den selbstgefälligen Carver und schlägt ihn brutal zusammen. Die Diva verzeiht ihr und gesteht, sie habe einst ihre Karriere durch eine ähnliche Tat gepusht und zudem eine stattliche Abfindung bekommen.
Mitgenommen wird sie ausgerechnet von dem Mann, der sie bei ihrer Ankunft beraubt hatte. Nomi zückt ihr Messer und fordert ihren Koffer zurück. Die Dreharbeiten begannen am August und dauerten bis zum Dezember
