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 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 »

Get him out of there. Preferably with his clothes on.

Not as bad as they say it is, but still pretty poor...
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.
