This movie is considered Burt Reynolds big comeback movie even though he had appeared in both The Player (1992) and Cop & ½ (1993). This is because of the attention the film got and the type of character he played. Also, his part in The Player (1992) was a cameo as part of an ensemble while Cop & ½ (1993) was essentially a children's film. See more »

Lt. Al Garcia:
Why don't you drop her off at our house?
I can't do that.
Lt. Al Garcia:
Why not? I told Donna everything. Your whole situation. She said if you needed a hand she'd love to help.
She doesn't think I'm something out of "A Current Affair"?
Lt. Al Garcia:
Erin, come on, you're a terrific girl. You know that, right? So you made a mistake a lot of terrific girls make, you married a bum. What are you gonna do? You gonna beat yourself up for the rest of your life?

Hiaasen should slap somebody
for those of you who don't know (and I'm sure there's a lot of you) Strip Tease was actually a book written by Carl Hiaasen, and a damn good book at that. Brilliant characters, an intriguing storyline, hilarious incidents, sex, violence, the works...
I gave the movie a 5 because Robert Patrick and Burt Reynolds were absolutely hysterical and on-point (I'm sure THEY actually READ the book), but aside from those two gems this movie was a disgrace.
What happened to the plot?!? What happened to like half the story?!? What happened to my self respect?!? Why change the ending?!? The story was enthralling and thoroughly enjoyable when I read the book, the movie (breasts considered) not so much..
There's a gratuitous 3 minute topless dancing scene, followed by 3 minutes of Demi and the little girl crying and being superdramatic. CHOOSE which audience you're marketing this movie towards! Women won't respect a nonsense T&A fest and men don't want to see a bunch of sappy overdramatics when the movie was advertised like a softcore porno flick.
The fact that a BOOK about strippers was exponentially better than the movie.. that's saying something.
