Review

Back when this ludicrous, sex-and-violence-jammed 1995 trash classic—based loosely on the plot of All About Eve—first came out, Berkley’s turn as sleazy Vegas dancer-on-the-rise Nomi Malone alternately delighted and disgusted fans of Saved By the Bell. But what makes it most memorable is just how seriously it takes itself, and how much Verhoeven and screenwriter Joe Eszterhas delight in this pulpy material.
