Yet another case of the star's salary being much more interesting, and exuberantly vulgar, than anything the screen reveals.

Bergman, who made The Freshman and Honeymoon in Vegas, provides quotable one-liners for everyone (especially Rhames), and a bevy of strippers lend colorful albeit stereotypically ditzy support.

The Striptease script... is at a loss for any kind of drama between Moore's dances. Not for a second do we care about her as a mother, wife or working woman.

If you get stuck at Striptease, my advice is to relax and try to enjoy its occasional pleasures.

Striptease was a big miss of a film. The film is a total waste, and has some of the worst performances that I've seen. The film is pretty pointless. The… More

Not as good as "Showgirls", and Rena Riffel's nude scene isn't even one of her most impressive.

Not as bad as I was expecting! Way too long at close to 2 hours, must have been so they could fit in so many scenes of Demi stripping. Surprised to see Ving… More
