Somewhat stiff and stilted

The concept behind this movie is intriguing - a sexual harassment suit in which the guy is the victim. Michael Douglas is great. However, Demi Moore can't act at all. Much of the script sounds like a bad political speech rather than actual dialogue. The music would work for an international spy thriller, but sounds out of place here. I'd like to see this concept, with Michael Douglas, but redone a bit better.

This movie about sex, lies and internal corporate politics offers something for everyone, with particular appeal to the computer geek. Demi Moore is Meridith, a former lover of Tom Sanders (Michael Douglas), and she is hot and hard. Willing to do whatever it takes to rise in the corporate chain, Meridith is named to a position making her Sanders' boss. She invites him to her office to, as she puts it, rehash old times and discuss the upcoming new ones. When he is there, she is extremely aggressive …

The book 'Disclosure' by Michael Crichton was an amazing book full of suspense and hi-tech excitement. Intertwining the newest computer abilities (I love the way a big 'E' jumps out when the main character get an e-mail LOL) and taking the subject of sexual harrasment and going the opposite direction, this had movie written all over it. The resulting product by Barry Levinson is good but not great, more like 3 1/2 stars out of 5 if I had the option. I enjoyed it (albeit the movie is a bit dated …

About this movie

Wiki

Michael Crichton's bestselling novel was both a high-tech thriller and source of controversy with its hot-button plot about a man's charge of sexual harassment against a female colleague and former lover. The movie, directed by Barry Levinson, turned these issues into a prurient thriller gussied up in glossy production values, virtual reality computer graphics, and steamy sex between Michael Douglas and Demi Moore. Having cornered the market on roles for men whose brains are located south of their waistline, Douglas is well cast as the computer-industry guy who loses a plush promotion to the opportunistic Moore, and he's perfected the expression of paranoid panic. If you don't think about it too much, this is one of those films that can draw you into its manipulative web and really grab your attention.Disclosureis more entertaining than thought provoking (because the filmmakers basically danced around the story's potential controversy), but there's enough star power and visual glitz to make this an enjoyable ride.--Jeff Shannon
