For her most daring role ever, Demi Moore bares all in this erotic satire about a single mother who turns to stripping in a Miami nightclub to earn money for a child-custody battle. But her sensual dancing attracts the unwanted attention of a deranged congressman who will stop at nothing--even murder--to possess her.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

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.

'90s drama about topless dancer has language, drinking.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Striptease is a 1996 drama based on the adult Carl Hiaasen novel Strip Tease. A lot of scenes are of topless women dancing erotically in g-strings or thongs. There's some sexual innuendo, some expectation that sex will happen, and frank talk about things like erections, but no romance or sex itself is shown. Violence is mostly cartoonish, but there's some hitting with a golf club, an axe, and a shoe; blood is briefly shown, but isn't gory. A dead body with a partially eaten away face is briefly shown. Guns and knives are brandished and a few guns are fired. Strong language includes "f--king," "s--t," "d--k," "t--ts," and various euphemisms like "poontang," "hoo-haw," and "pecker." Many scenes take place in a strip club and show background drinking and smoking. A couple of important characters smoke cigars and cigarettes. One character is said to be addicted to pills and is seen popping morphine pills prescribed for a pet by a veterinarian. A conversation about Prozac mentions that it makes you happy but gives you a "limp noodle." Diverse cast.
