“A stripper and single mother gets dragged into a dangerous situation after a congressman takes a fancy to her.”

… in 1 word:
Prolonged.

… in 10 words:
Far too long but it does have a good soundtrack.

… in 100 words:
Striptease is a film that I was hesitant to revisit. I thought that I liked it but had a strange feeling that the assumption was due to how many times I’ve seen it and, to a certain extent, I was right. Stripping, murder, lies and deceit: great material for a film, right? Not when the pacing is off and the relationships feel underdeveloped (even though they had time). Demi Moore does put herself into the role of a stripper and I suppose that was a selling point. I suppose a redeeming factor would be its soundtrack; I love Annie Lennox!

Now go and watch it…
