DIRECTOR: ANDREW BERGMAN
CAST: DEMI MOORE, BURT REYNOLDS, VING RHAMES, ARMAND ASSANTE
Introduced by David Friend.
Newly-divorced and struggling to gain custody of her daughter, Moore turns to exotic dancing to pay the bills, and after Burt Reynolds’ incognito congressman stirs up a fuss at the club where she works, she gets in over her head in a half-baked blackmail scheme. Sneered at on release, today Striptease can be seen as the faithful adaptation from Carl Hiaasen’s out-there novel that it is, a study in sexual bartering and power brokering in sunny, sleazy south Florida.
