Plot Summary: An up-close and personal look, on stage and backstage, at five ecdysiasts who dance at the Blue Iguana in L.A. Stormy is melancholy and distant; a man from her past has come to town and wants to see her. Jasmine writes poetry and may have met someone - Dennis, who organizes readings at a coffee house. Angel, a ditzy stoner, wants a foster child; a Russian hitman is smitten by her. Jessie is new in town, a vulnerable adolescent who tries to act grown up. Jo is brassy, in-your-face, and pregnant. Eddie runs the place with help from Bobby. A big weekend is coming up, so he's hired Nico to headline. The women look for reassurance; some find it in each other.

Comments:A collection of very compelling scenes...Not a perfect movie by any means, yet still worth the investment in time to experience it. This is a collection of very compelling scenes with fascinating characters that almost anyone should be able to appreciate on several levels.

Personal quotes

"I am very proud to have done that. Ricky Martin was so sweet, like so not what I ever expected. And, it definitely helped me get back on my feet financially." - on starring in Ricky Martin's video for "She's All I Ever Had."

"The pageant was such a fluke. I mean, I was living in an orphanage, and my foster mother bet me $150 to go out for this thing. Nobody, including myself, thought that a foster kid could be a beauty queen." - on being Miss Teen USA 1993

"Ever since I was a little girl, I envisioned this exactly happening to me. Not necessarily doing a movie about strippers but being young and having somebody like a director like Michael see me and see something in me and take a chance. And have a process like we have had." - on her film Dancing at the Blue Iguana (2000)
