Drama about a high-tech executive who gets passed over for a promotion in favor of an upcoming woman executive and is then accused of sexual harassment. Exposes the hypocrisy and deceit of the corporate world and what people will do for personal and corporate gain. The slant given to the issue of sexual harassment would be a good topic for discussion.

Narrow minded people have a tendancy to think that ONLY men sexually harass women. However, realists know that is not so. This movie shows us a woman who rose to power (Demi Moore) & sexually harrasses Michael Douglas (her employee) AND by proving him incompetent in the manufacturing sector to get him off the payroll for spurning her years ago.

This movie is great, I love how the twists keep coming with a look into office politics and harassment. A lesson to never give up and it's not over until the fat lady sings!

Demi & Douglas had great chemistry in this movie. They fight for control in a corporate computer technical world. Enough suspense and great acting to keep you watching.

I enjoyed the honesty of the office sexual tensions and how the director wove it all into a suspensful and believable thriller

The allegedly questionable behavior exhibited by character Meredith Johnson in this film was a whole lot of hype about nothing of much importance. It certainly did not rise to the level of Johnson's dismissal from the company -- in fact, she was working as hard as she could, doing the business of the company. Plus, everybody does this sort of thing, it is common behavior in the corporate world. Plus, the charges of harassment leveled by Tom Sanders were lies. Also, the suggestion that Meredith had done something which merited dismissal from her job was a lot of hate talk, the corporate politics of personal destruction. And finally, by the time the harassment charges really arose in the movie, most of the characters had pretty much put it in the past, they had turned the page and moved on with business -- it was old news.
The best advice anyone could have given Tom, at the point he decided to go public and complain, was a wise bit of rape crisis counselling provided on one occasion by another of society's mistreated male victims: "You'd better get some ice on that."

First off, I usually love Barry Levinson's work. "The Natural", "Avalon", just to name a couple of beautifully shot, well-told stories. Now here comes "Disclosure", which, as farce, rates about a 41/2. Unfortunately, that's not the category it's supposed to occupy. There are so many unbelievable premises in this film that it's hard to know where to start. All due respect, Michael Douglas as the loyal husband doing his damndest to fend off a beautiful, sexy woman without losing his job? That's more than a stretch--it's a bungee jump. Demi Moore begging for sex from anyone? Another bungee jump. The loyal wife, sitting and listening to her husband's accuser (that's right, Demi Moore turns the table on Mike and charges him with harrasment) describe in full detail, a la White House intern, what transpired. Does the betrayed wife try to throw Demi out the skyscraper window? No. Choke her? No. She sits and quietly simmers like someone who's been waiting in the doctor's office too long. Bungee 3 for that one. The last and biggest bungee is the idea of the story itself. What exactly is the point of this film? That men get harassed in the workplace? A film more like, "The Insider", which stayed on point about its subject, would be more in order. Finally, here's a test: Watch the film, then switch the roles. Make Michael Douglas the big honcho and Demi Moore the victim. Isn't that boring? Know why? Because it's happened so much, nobody wants to make movies about it any more. That speaks volumes.
