It is an exercise in pure cynicism, with little respect for its subject -- or for its thriller plot, which I defy anyone to explain.

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

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.

You know in advance what the politics will be: strong women in positions of power are just fine as long as they aren't sexually dominant and obey middle-class rules of propriety.

Disclosure, ostensibly about reverse sexual harassment, is really just a platform for Moore's true lack of acting ability to come through better than ever.

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

You should read what happens in the book. It would make a helluva movie.

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.

Worse than merely 'pertinent'.

Viewers who will find the most to appreciate here are men in the winter of white male discontent.

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.

In its rush to push hot buttons, Disclosure neglected some essentials of good storytelling.

This time, it's the author who's the dinosaur.

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.
