Because the portion of our audience which donated enough to IndieGoGo to push us over an arbitrary threshold demanded it, it’s time for the Aluminum Four to tackle one of the more infamous movies of the 90s, Showgirls. While four of her SbtB co-stars went off to The College Years, Elizabeth Berkley went on to bigger and better things - but ended up here, in a movie pitched at the level of her “I’m so excited/I’m so scared” freakout for two long, tonally-dissonant hours. It’s a movie that tries to be a prestige drama and a thick slab of camp at the same time, before taking a disturbing & disquieting turn at the end. It’s got boobs and hamburgers and Kyle McLachlan’s butt and Gina Gershon snorting coke off her fingernail and floppy swimming pool sex and angry dancing. So much angry dancing. So grab some ice and give us your best jazz hands, then download & listen here, rate & review us on iTunes or Stitcher, follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook. The show can also be found on PodBean and Google Play. And you can email us at sbtbreviewed@gmail.com. And don’t forget to support our IndieGoGo campaign! In exchange for helping us cover our expenses, you can get some cool swag. It’s the reason we did this episode! Check out the page here! http://media.sbtbreviewed.com/SBTBReviewedEp128.mp3
