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.

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.

Writer-director Andrew Bergman presents [Moore] as a rather abstract object of desire. He wants us to know that his mind, at least, is not in the gutter--can't afford to waste time there, given the amount of busy work he has to.

The result is a perversely odd concoction: a comedy that has fun with everything but stripping -- which, post-Showgirls, would seem to wear the biggest bull's-eye.

Striptease stinks. Yes, that's a crude, perhaps even rude, assessment. But crude and rude are the two terms that sum up this alleged comedy.

This may sound like a suspense movie, but it's not. There's no mystery (we know who the bad guys are) and the damsel-in-distress angle generates zero tension.

The Fort Lauderdale setting imparts little flavor or atmosphere, and the same goes for the flagrantly unerotic dances.

A dark comedy about sleaze, corruption and naughty behavior below the Bible Belt, Striptease doesn't quite come off.

This is pitched too close to caricature to engender suspense, but lacks the crisp, acerbic wit which distinguishes Hiaasen's prose.

We can render a verdict on the movie now: It's an interesting misfire.

This film falls victim to a clash of sensibilities that is fatal.

Overall this is at best patchy, and, more damagingly, not funny.

Certainly the director, Andrew Bergman, is capable of making a satirical laugh fest... But the problem is with Erin Grant, who interrupts the comic rhythm with her underlying seriousness.

Who told Demi Moore she can act? She can't. End of discussion.
