Pure and simple trash masquerading as significance.

Its preoccupation with snazzy computer-generated special effects has left key plot points so unclear at least one baffled viewer had to retreat to the book to find out why some things happened and others did not.

The presence of Douglas, who has made a career of being pursued by beautiful, dangerous women, turns this sexual-harassment thriller into instant camp.

This witty, wily battle between genders is not so much about sexual harassment as it is about power politics in the workplace, where water-cooler gossip is replaced by E-mail, and where memo warfare is waged by combatants in virtual-reality goggles.

On the level of pure craft, Disclosure is first-rate in every department. Levinson's directing is cogent and colorful, and cinematography by camera wizard Tony Pierce-Roberts is dazzling.

For those who would question Crichton's motives, Levinson and Attanasio haven't let men off the hook.

This is the least personal movie [Levinson has] made in years, and the script is more a shortening of Crichton's story than a dramatization.

If the best parts of Disclosure are its sideshows, its biggest drawback is that infernal infatuation the filmmakers have with technology and power.

Douglas, with Fatal Attraction and Basic Instinct behind him, knows all about playing male victimization without total loss of amour propre. Moore's ferocity is totally unredeemed, therefore totally riveting.

This is one of those big, sleek soulless movies that hums along, impressed with itself and the Big Issue it allegedly tackles... [but] what Disclosure really does best is appeal to your most prurient instincts.

Moore models some slinky lingerie and Douglas soaks his collars in sweat, while the emphasis on computer gizmos and cyber-babble encourages a verdict of virtual rubbish.

It soars because of the sizzling chemistry of Douglas and Demi Moore.

Douglas makes for a sympathetic and wily hero.

In this world of Information Highway sophistication and virtual-reality marvels, the pivotal plot points are all rickety coincidences: an overheard conversation, a fortuitous phone call.

...watchable yet far-from-engrossing...

Little more than another Hollywood sizzler, a highly melodramatic and perhaps opportunistic look at a couple of topical themes; that said, it's also a lot of fun.

The impact of 'Disclosure' is weakened significantly by depiction of the female boss as a totally evil person.

A glibly entertaining corporate thriller.

This is a deeply silly film, highlighting some of Hollywood's most overrated talent at its indulgent, issue-chasing worst.

TV Guide's Movie Guide
November 5, 2008
The movie comes closest to thematic coherence, and the popular mood, in its depiction of something nearly everyone can relate to: the office from hell.
