This is one of those movies that people seem to either really love or hate. I actually liked the movie for a variety of reasons.

First, the plot is believable. A down and out, although attractive woman dreams of being a Las Vegas showgirl. She clearly has the looks and talent to be successful, just not the pedigree. The movie is about what it takes for her to achieve her goal, in a somewhat seamy world where women and men are exploited by a cast of sleazy characters. Secondly, Naomi, the main character played by Elizabeth Berkley, does have character. She eventually has to decide if her dream is worth her compromising her values. And despite being stripper and former call girl, she does have character.

I'm not sure why this film is so reviled by some.
