Was thinking "do a movie where you get naked and do a bunch of sex stuff" always gets posited as a way to launch a career, but I can't remember it working for anyone other than Sharon Stone for Basic Instinct (but she was already a reasonably established actress).

It's weird that she bypasses hard drugs. Seemed like they would fit with her dancing style and emotional outbursts.

"I'm so excited! I'm so... scared."

I wanted to make a "How do you know it's the best cocaine in the world? Have you done coke in every country?" joke but realized the answer was probably yes.

Catching strippers eating lunch at sidewalk cafes on the Strip is an underrated pleasure, you guys. (No sarcasm. I love those days when it happens)

I miss the Palm there (and the fact that I no longer live near one, in general).

I thought she was setting her up to make fun of her there. They're selling Berkley as the in-bred hick and Gershon as the wily vet threatened by Berkley's purity.

Gershon is the only person in the movie (or at least only woman) who 100% gets it was going to be atrocious.

This dance scene is going to last probably 600% too long.

I mean, I hope so? That would almost make sense. It should end with her doing a rail off a dude's erect cock.

Kids in a dressing room with a bunch of nude chicks getting freaked out about the f-word is almost an accurate "slice of real Vegas" touch. They could have almost hit that note.

To bengal's point earlier, whose dream is it to do this for a living? Is there a highly-skilled dancer who's like "Fuck Swan Lake on Broadway, I want to shake my tits for a bunch of fat guys taking a break from an insurance seminar"

Exactly. This is the fourth or fifth choice (at best) for any woman who aspires to dance, no matter how much of a fucking rube you are.

Guys, I literally almost passed out from laughing at that gambling lingo from MacLachlan. My wife wanted to make sure I was OK. That was honestly maybe the most ridiculous shit I've ever heard in a movie.

These two run through this "I berate you, then you apologize to the dancer" scene twice a week.
