'Showgirls 2' Trailer. Wow. Just Wow.

Wow. This is pretty amazing. So apparently they've made a sequel to the so-bad-it's-almost-good-but-no-it-still-really-sucks sexploitation flick Showgirls, which famously starred Elizabeth Berkley from the teen sitcom 'Saved by the Bell.' (That's her licking a pole on the left. Yes, that's a still from the film. Here's a little tip for any aspiring actresses out there reading the blog. If you've been offered a movie role, and you think it might be a breakout role for you, use this little rule of thumb. If the film requires you to lick a stripper pole while wearing a thong, pass on the movie. Trust me on this one.) This flick was such a stinker it simultaneously launched and ended Berkley's film career. But clearly Showgirls looks like Raging Bull compared to this sequel which seems improbably, hilariously, amateurishly bad. Just check out this trailer. Amazingly, the film allegedly had a $25 million budget, but it looks to have the production values of low-end porn film or a highschool English project where the teacher lets the kids use the video camera and do a "presentation" instead of handing in a paper. Honestly, if I were told this was shot on VHS, I wouldn't be suprised. It's that level of bad. The trailer - which runs over four minutes and just features shots of naked bimbos with a comically bad musical score (think late night phone sex commercial) with no semblence of the plot for this sequel looks so hilariously low-budget and poorly made that this very well could be the worst sequel ever made. Bad news, Troll II, there just might be a new Sheriff in town! Please, I urge you not to give up on this trailer due to it's crappiness, cause it's really worth watching the whole thing just to see when the title sequence comes up. I nearly spit out my drink when I saw the titles. Totally worth it.
