3.0 out of 5 stars A Much-Ado Movie Constructed Around Nothing Important
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...

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the book..., Sept. 6 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Disclosure (VHS Tape)
...and I liked the book a lot. Crichton is my favorite popular novelist. This story does not have BLOCK-BUSTER written all over it, so I think Crichton was brave to write this (you can hear his editors saying, "You're writing a book about WHAT?! We want more DINOSAURS!!). And Barry Levinson did a wonderful job directing it. The only weak point is Demi Moore's performance in the scene in the corporate auditorium. She looks really awkward, and seems to be having a little stage-fright as an actress. But the rest of the film is very good.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dis-Clothes-Her, Dec 23 1999

This review is from: Disclosure (VHS Tape)
A movie that tries to foil anything politically correct can't be all bad, and director Barry Levinson's Disclosure sets up a number of intriguing situations along its sexual harrassment superhighway. Problem is, what starts out as having potential sinks quickly into the mire of writer Michael Crichton's shallow characters and insipid plotting. Despite some snappy dialogue and a wealth of opportunities to tongue-lash the villainess (Moore), Disclosure lacks the tension that this kind of high-tech jousting requires: the virtual reality scene near the end of the film seems particularly tacked on. Somehow I feel hesitant recommending a film that is supposed to be dealing honestly with the complexities of male-female relationships in the workplace, but that ultimately reinforces the stereotypes it claims to be shattering.

2.0 out of 5 stars ., Nov. 15 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Disclosure [Import] (DVD)
This film will only be "controversial" and "thought-provoking" to the bland, white, middle-class working drones it is catered to. This is basically just your typical "adult-oriented" Hollywood fluff. It could've been worse, but it's only very marginally entertaining (the "virtual reality" stuff is just plain silly), and it's certainly a far cry from profound.

5.0 out of 5 stars a film on woman power!?!, April 17 1999
By 
This review is from: Disclosure [Import] (DVD)
Here are the 90s, the decade of the woman. this is a film that will wet your pants when a woman in power takes an aggressive pass as a man. But how far shall this go? Demi Moore & Michael Douglas starred on this suspense drama of manipulation, accusations and coercion. Who will win? This is what the viewer needs to find out! Seattle is a great location.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eye opening., Jan. 27 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Disclosure [Import] (DVD)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie and good plot twist, Jan. 16 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Disclosure [Import] (DVD)
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars This movie was excellent, Dec 4 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Disclosure (VHS Tape)
For those of you who have not seen disclosure you are missing quite a bit. It is the story of a business man(Michael Douglas) who's ex girlfriend(Demi Moore) comes to work at his office. In the coarse of events she become his boss and tries to further the relationship. One night in his office she tries to seduce him, even as far as having oral sex with him. After a little foreplay he turns her down and goes home to his wife. Well the next day he is charged with sexual harassment. Douglas proceeds to counter the suit. The movie shows the double standards between men and women concerning sexual assult. The audience watched as a once well thought of man becomes a outcast and a devious woman gets placed on a pedistal. What really makes this moving worth watching is the knowledge that the higher the pedistal the longer the fall. When Demi Moore's character falls, she falls hard. It's an excellant movie with a lot of surprises and a sweet kind of justice.

1.0 out of 5 stars Makes a great comedy!, March 22 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Disclosure [Import] (DVD)
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars This movie is insulting., Sept. 22 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Disclosure (VHS Tape)
I think it was very low that they did a film where a woman who rises to the top of a large company and does this sort of thing shows that Hollywood has not really given women any decent treatment on film. Shame on the cast and crew who did this film.
