What to know

critics consensus

Striptease can't decide whether it is a lurid thriller or a sexy satire - which becomes a moot point as it proves disastrously incapable of pulling either off. Read critic reviews

Audience Reviews for Striptease

  • Sep 24, 2011
    Striptease was a big miss of a film. The film is a total waste, and has some of the worst performances that I've seen. The film is pretty pointless. The story is paper thin and has no redeeming factor. Not even Demi Moore's nice rack can save this atrocious picture. The cast is very questionable and their performances seem too fake for my taste. This film is awful. There's absolutely no other way to describe it. The performances suffer because the actors are terrible. The film is not engaging one bit, and it's just a big boring attempt at trying to make a good film. Obviously the film has gotten attention for Demi Moore, and it is really the only point of interest of this film. Not even that can save the film. This film is poorly acted, directed with a bad cast and a poor script. Striptease fails to entertain, and though we see Demi Moore's lovely assets, the film has nothing else going for it. A terrible, pointless film that should've never been made. Striptease aside from Demi Moore naked is not a good film; the film lacks a very good story, good story and everything else that makes a film good. I don't understand how this trash got made. A pointless and stupid film, Striptease is not good entertainment and is easily forgettable because the film is so mediocre. An awful film that should be avoided. This film also shows that Demi Moore isn't that good of an actress either. So aside from Moore naked, you're not missing much. If you want to watch it, proceed with caution. One full star for Demi Moore's figure!

    Not much of an game changer, Demi Moore takes on the role of a stripper, trying to keep custody of her kid, and trapping a senator to do so. It's more of a cheese fest than anything, but I've gotta admit that Moore has some serious moves.

    As bad as you've heard? Pretty much. Biggest problem: nobody told Demi Moore - the STAR of the damn movie, mind you - that this was supposed to be a satiric comedy. In the right context, an oiled-down Burt Reynolds in cowboy boots would appear funny instead of ridiculous. I'll be generous and stuff another half-star in the garter of a movie that has both Rena Riffel and Barbara Alyn Woods stripping.

    The film revolves around Erin Grant (Demi Moore), a former FBI secretary, who loses custody of her young daughter Angela to selfish, obsessive and criminally minded ex-husband, Darrell. In order to gain custody, Erin becomes a stripper trying to earn extra cash at the Eager Beaver, a raunchy strip club. She forms a liaison with a sleazy Congressman who is totally smitten with her and may be able to help her settle the custody dispute in Erin's favor. Ving Rhames watches over her as self-appointed guardian and I did enjoy Armand Assante while Burt Reynolds' perverted character is entertaining. Movie contains plenty of nude scenes and if you're going to watch it, it'll be to see Demi stripping excuse me, dancing right down to a skimpy g-string.
