Yet another case of the star's salary being much more interesting, and exuberantly vulgar, than anything the screen reveals.
The Striptease script... is at a loss for any kind of drama between Moore's dances. Not for a second do we care about her as a mother, wife or working woman.
The film's premise is thinner than the heroine's G-string.
Bergman, who made The Freshman and Honeymoon in Vegas, provides quotable one-liners for everyone (especially Rhames), and a bevy of strippers lend colorful albeit stereotypically ditzy support.
Men will doubtless be lured to Striptease by Moore's beautifully sculpted body. But it's the heart she puts into Erin that gives this more erratic than erotic picture the centering presence it needs.
If you get stuck at Striptease, my advice is to relax and try to enjoy its occasional pleasures.
I don't know if the lawyers are currently scanning the contracts for Striptease in order to find out what went wrong in the small print, but someone got badly conned; and that someone is mostly the audience.
Striptease is not a disaster like that other expensive ecdysiast extravaganza, Showgirls, though if it were, it might at least have some redeeming camp awfulness to enliven its otherwise dull mediocrity.
For all its matter-of-fact nudity and wealth of silicon-heavy exotic dancers, the film lacks any palpable sense of eroticism.
Although the movie is a bit too long, oddball humor and a likable cast keep it entertaining.
Striptease is an amiable comedy with ambitions to be a satire, but its thriller plot keeps getting in the way of the yucks.
Andrew Bergman's direction makes it watchable, but his screenplay pulls its punches on the sleaze, and tear-jerking sentimentality and inadequate humour don't combine well with the drama.
If Demi strutting around like a skinned chicken in an excessive amount of strip scenes doesn't make you want to die, the constant use of Annie Lennox and eurythmics songs will do it for you.
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 as bad as I was expecting! Way too long at close to 2 hours, must have been so they could fit in so many scenes of Demi stripping. Surprised to see Ving Rhames and Robert Patrick were in this along with a funny Burt Reynolds. Quite funny in places and well... plenty of nudity to!
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.
