Trivia

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 »

Not as bad as they say it is, but still pretty poor...
13 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

Striptease

Dire, but strangely fascinating, Demi Moore vehicle about a single mother who turns to a life of stripping in order to gain custody of her daughter. (Robert Patrick is the drug-stealing ex-husband who gains custody of the child.) Ving Rhames is a bodyguard and Burt Reynolds has a nice co-star role as a sleazy political candidate. This movie was extremely bashed when it came out, but it's better than "Showgirls," and sort of watchable. If you don't expect much of a story, then this is for you...be warned, however, that there is a lot of stripteasing in this film.
