I’ve never understood the hate. It’s truly a cult classic!

… in 100 words:
Are you sensing a bias? It’s hard not to be. This film will forever be engrained in my mind. It made me lover spectacle. It made me love drama. It made me… who I am. Okay so that’s giving it too much credit. But seriously, what’s not to like? Okay so it may drag a bit and be a bit camp, but come on; it revolves around a Vegas show girls. What did you expect? It’s certainly not afraid to earn its age certificate, so if you’re into sex, drugs and violence, you may enjoy it… just with added sparkle..

Now go and watch it…
