Showgirls 30-Second Summary

Showgirls begins with Nomi Malone as a young girl hitchhiking her way out of small town USA to make it as a Las Vegas Showgirl. On the way to town, she gets picked up by an Elvis clone who ends up robbing Nomi. She has a bit of a breakdown, but immediately meets Molly Abrams who befriends Nomi, and takes her in as her roomie. Molly brings Nomi backstage to her work at Goddess; one of The Stardust Casino’s topless reviews, and gets humiliated by the show’s star, Cristal Connors.

Nomi is so upset over this that she can’t work at her own strip club that night, and instead goes to a club to dance her anger off. She gets in a fight with a bouncer named James, and gets arrested. Creeper James decides to bail her out for some odd reason.

The next night, Cristal brings her sleezeball boyfriend, Zack to Nomi’s stripclub, Cheetah’s, to prove to Nomi that she’s just a prostitute in disguise. She pays Nomi $500 to dance for Zack, thus proving her point, but Cristal has a heart of gold, and she gets Nomi an audition as a chorus girl in her Goddess show.
