Erin Grant loses care and custody of her daughter when she's divorced from her husband Darrell, a small-time thief. Struggling for money, she is a dancer at a nightclub, where one night Congressman Dilbeck (in disguise) attacks another member of the audience. A spectator, who recognizes Dilbeck and is fond of Erin, offers to get back her daughter by blackmailing Dilbeck. Things do not work out as planned, though. Written by

Michael B. Jordan:
Appears as himself as a patron in the strip club in the scene where Erin Grant (Demi Moore) meets Lt. Al Garcia (Armand Assante) after one of the dancers says "Michael Jordan is at table 8" in original theatrical. The name in this line was changed and Michael Jordan's name is uncredited. See more »

[seizes Erin from behind and holds a knife to her neck]
Where's my little'un?
Where you can't get her.
Is that ever the wrong answer. Now you bring her to me right now!
I am not bringing her to you anywere in this lifetime.
Well, then I guess I'll just have to go to that nice old judge and tell him my whore of a wife has abducted...
Well, guess what, Darell? The judge is dead! So if you want Angela, then you're just going to have to kill me. Go on!
Think I'm afraid ...

There must be a more painless way to see Demi Moore disrobe...
Shabby comedy-drama from Carl Hiaasen's novel has ex-FBI clerk Demi Moore turning to stripping in order to pay off her legal debts; seems she's in a fight to retrieve her child from her disreputable ex, yet the film doesn't see stripping as disreputable and therefore Moore is the good guy in the plot. Director Andrew Bergman may have helmed this project blindfolded, how else to explain the sketchily-drawn characters, the ridiculous strip-club sequences or a dire sub-plot involving Congressman Burt Reynolds? Solid supporting turns by Armand Assante as a cop and Ving Rhames as a bouncer give the film its only validity. As for Moore, she isn't a bad actress, nor is she a stupid one, but the $12 million she acquired for her non-performance here seems a joke on the audience--and on Hollywood. * from ****
