It’s hard to believe, but today is the 20th anniversary of the release of the greatest movie of all time, the one that deserved all the Oscars and Golden Globes and, hell, even an honorary Tony award or something, but got slighted with a few Razzies. Of course I’m talking about Showgirls. What other cinematic masterpiece even IS there worth mentioning?!

Note that this post will have some NSFW moments, so if you’re reading this while “working on that budget presentation” at your desk, I wouldn’t.

Here are just some of the many reasons why Showgirls is the best movie of all time:

Nomi Malone is the feminist icon of a generation.Showgirls Turns 20 and We re Still Obsessed with It nomi malone dancer gif

She’s not a stripper, she’s a DANCER.

Nomi is also incredibly fierce.Showgirls Turns 20 and We re Still Obsessed with It nomi malone stripper pole lick gif

She smized (while licking a pole, which is totally unhygienic but whatevs) way before it was even a thing.

In fact, Nomi isn’t someone you fuck with. At all.Showgirls Turns 20 and We re Still Obsessed with It anigif enhanced 20309 1405104457 4 gif

But she sure is loyal to her friends.Showgirls Turns 20 and We re Still Obsessed with It anigif enhanced 23465 1397680809 29 gif

It taught us all the importance of nailing your signature look.Showgirls Turns 20 and We re Still Obsessed with It anigif enhanced 505 1405101481 8 gif

And had some ultra glamorous nail art before Pinterest even existed.Showgirls Turns 20 and We re Still Obsessed with It anigif enhanced 4071 1405101748 15 gif

Here’s more:

We could all relate to how annoying a dance coach is. Showgirls Turns 20 and We re Still Obsessed with It 200 gif

Or, you know, how bad we feel for the contestants on The Biggest Loser while going HAM on some popcorn and wine.

It taught us how important self-defense really is.Showgirls Turns 20 and We re Still Obsessed with It 200 gif

And to ALWAYS watch our backs.Showgirls Turns 20 and We re Still Obsessed with It anigif enhanced 30793 1405101811 1 gif

There’s always someone younger and hungrier coming down the stairs after you.

The dance scenes are elaborate and exquisite.Showgirls Turns 20 and We re Still Obsessed with It anigif enhanced 16466 1405102520 8 gif

Nomi clearly aces her physicals every year, cause girl is flexible AF.Showgirls Turns 20 and We re Still Obsessed with It anigif enhanced 31673 1405103938 1 gif

She also goes after what she wants, which is a great lesson for all of us.Showgirls Turns 20 and We re Still Obsessed with It anigif enhanced 23365 1397661981 7 gif

Shopping makes me this happy, too.Showgirls Turns 20 and We re Still Obsessed with It anigif enhanced 29112 1397698272 14 gif

Especially at Versayce.

Glittery hair gel and crystals all over your face isn’t just a great look for Vegas.Showgirls Turns 20 and We re Still Obsessed with It anigif enhanced 10420 1397708095 9 gif

Def gonna rock something similar this weekend, thanks Nomi.

And, of course, jazz hands. A movie with jazz hands is perfection in my book.Showgirls Turns 20 and We re Still Obsessed with It anigif enhanced 19453 1397664546 3 gif

So in honor of its 20th birthday (finally, next year Showgirls can drink in Vegas!) I’m going to have some brown rice and vegetables for lunch and head to the Stardust, darlin’.
