DJ Hottpants’ obsession with Showgirls led him to find out how it even got made in the first place. In two words: Basic Instinct! Written by Joe Eszterhas (Flashdance, Sliver) and directed by Paul Verhoeven (Total Recall, Robocop), the pulpy/steamy/campy/whaaaaa? neo-noir earned 117 million dollars in the US alone. And just like that, their next project would be greenlit sight unseen.
Michael Douglas returns to the streets of San Francisco as a police detective who becomes entranced with a murder suspect. Sharon Stone hit the big time as the suspected femme fatale whose latest novel mimics the murder. Her infamous interview scene was also the the cause for many VHS tapes to break, as lustful fans kept pausing and rewinding again and again to see if they saw what they think they saw between her legs! LGBT organizations boycotted and protested the film for its portrayal of lesbians and bi-sexuals. Everyone else should have protested the script’s dialogue and plot holes (which was written in only 10 days and sold for 3 million dollars). Nominated for 2 Oscars AND 2 Razzies, Basic Instinct is a treat not to be missed!
