Joseph Gordon-Levitt Shows Early Promise
14 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After a great run of movies "Ghost", "A Few Good Men", Indecent Proposal" and "Disclosure". Demi Moore had escaped the 'Brat Pack' phase of her career and was now the go to leading lady of Hollywood. However she came unstuck with "The Scarlett Letter" tanking and "Now & Then" hardly setting the world alight.

Up next was the "The Juror". Which didn't stop the rot before "Striptease" opened to scathing reviews and a less than expected Box Office returns.

There is a lot wrong with this movie, but none of that is really Moore's fault, as despite a stellar cast (Alec Baldwin, James Gandolfini, and Anne Heche) it is her who carries the movie on her own. Baldwin was still an attractive leading man back them, gives a career low performance of the time. I'm not sure his character is meant to be as funny as he seems. Gandolfini (with an awful accent to match his performance) gives no indication of his future in "The Soprano's" but is still better than Baldwin. A bright spot though is Joseph Gordon-Levitt catches the eye and shows his future promise as Moore's son Oliver.

It's over half an hour too long, I was surprised at it's running time as it felt a lot longer. Ridiculous plot twists and some unnecessary scenes of sex and violence weigh down what could have been a tight little thriller. Moore is watchable as always, but these are not two of her better hours.
