      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Striptease can't decide whether it is a lurid thriller or a sexy satire - which becomes a moot point as it proves disastrously incapable of pulling either off.

      Elvis D Bastante menospreciada en su momento, Striptease es una película que nos hace recordar aquellos días cuando Demi Moore rompía corazones. El título y el póster parecían insinuar que se trataba de una película erótica, pero en realidad se trata de un drama con elementos humorísticos. Viéndolo desde cierto ángulo, es una buena historia sobre una madre desempleada que tiene que trabajar como stripper aún en contra de sus valores para poder conseguir dinero y recuperar la custodia de su hija. Lo que está bueno sobre esa idea es que sirve para pensar que las bailarinas de striptease o hasta incluso las que trabajan en el mundo de la prostitución tratan de ganarse la vida o tienen una boca extra que alimentar. Ya sea que se considere algo inmoral en algunos casos, está correctamente justificado porque las mujeres que trabajan en este tipo de negocios también son trabajadoras más allá de la imagen lujuriosa que tienen. El objetivo de esta historia y la novela en que se basa es dar a entender que las strippers tienen otra vida fuera del escenario y que incluso algunas son mujeres con hijos que cuidar. Todo lo mencionado pega bien para una película dramática, pero el humor que se decidió agregar hizo que muchos no pudieran tomársela en serio. La película logra ser seria por algunos momentos y divertida por otros. Eso hace que sea bastante disfrutable de ver. La belleza de Demi Moore es lo que se apodera de gran parte de la película, pero no hay que dejar de lado la participación de un joven Ving Rhames bastante carismático y un senador lleno de perversiones y obsesiones hacia Moore que lo hacen un personaje divertido. La banda sonora incluso tiene muy buenas canciones de la época. Striptease no es la película erótica que muchos esperaban ver porque no tienen nada de erotismo, pero es una película entretenida que nos hace recordar porque Demo Moore se ha ganado el corazón de muchos. Mi calificación final para esta película es un 9/10. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/15/24 Full Review Michael O It's one of the worst movies I've ever seen. It's one of the worst movies ever made. Demi Moore is a divorced mom who loses custody of her daughter when a corrupt judge sides with her deadbeat ex-husband. To get her daughter back, she goes to work at the Eager Beaver gentleman's club. This is the only saving grace of the film, seeing Demi get on stage and show off her beautiful, buffed body. The story line and dialog are both sophomoric. It was a shame good celluloid had to be wasted to make this film. I've given it three stars because it is definitely a movie for guys who like movies. If there's nothing good on TV, call out for pizza and sandwiches, get some beer. Then, watch Demi take her clothes off. Not a bad deal. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/16/24 Full Review Jack B Striptease is definitely an underrated film. If anything this movie is too much like real life. Moore, Reynolds and the others did a fine job. Demi Moore is a great actress. I don't understand why it got such low rating and particularly when you compare it to other really dumb movies. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/25/24 Full Review A.L.Jude P Charming and could appreciate the perseverance of a mothers love. Terribly underrated. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 12/05/23 Full Review Steve D Sexy yes, but also aimless. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review James J A I mean a guilty pressure to a large male demo no doubt. If they had given the lead role to a playboy playmate, some baywatch actress, or even a model like Cindy Crawford, they would have benefited more out of it, even though it still would have been a terrible movie. I mean considering the cast they got for its time, if they gave us the art and passion of strippers , maybe it would have been a solid but really strippers seem were a subplot and it was just a side hustle for the main character. Props to demi for committing to the part. Surprised she didn't take this as a profession after her career pretty much died after this Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Chris Peachment Daily Telegraph (UK) I don't know if the lawyers are currently scanning the contracts for Striptease in order to find out what went wrong in the small print, but someone got badly conned; and that someone is mostly the audience. Nov 28, 2017 Full Review Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal Yet another case of the star's salary being much more interesting, and exuberantly vulgar, than anything the screen reveals. Jun 18, 2014 Full Review Gene Siskel Chicago Tribune 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. Rated: 1/4 Jun 18, 2014 Full Review Eddie Harrison film-authority.com '...a better than average crime-thriller with some salty characters and a propulsive, scabrous plot.... Rated: 3/5 Jun 13, 2021 Full Review Leigh Paatsch Herald Sun (Australia) Slack stuff. Rated: 1.5/5 Oct 19, 2020 Full Review Gary Susman Boston Phoenix Striptease is not a disaster like that other expensive ecdysiast extravaganza, Showgirls, though if it were, it might at least have some redeeming camp awfulness to enliven its otherwise dull mediocrity.
