And since I still haven´t gotten around to include Demi Moore in the blog - because every year I forget it or I´m too busy - I decided that this year I´m finally going to do it so I can easily re - post it in the years to come.
Not many actresses can carry a movie like STRIPTEASE which calls for a performer willing to take her clothes off and Demi Moore is not shy about letting the audience appreciate her remarkable physical condition. No accident of fate has made Moore the highest paid actress in Hollywood, she has the kind of intensity and force of will that brought Joan Crawford to a similar prominence. Her great earnestness and determination can also be seen here : her role as exotic dancer Erin Grant has the ravishing actress buffed and toned enough for the cover of MUSCLE & FITNESS.
For those who haven´t seen STRIPTEASE yet ( I´m assuming there are those ) front and center in all of this is Demi Moore who plays Erin Grant.
She´s an F.B.I. secretary with the mind of a saint and a body made for sin who loses her job and the custody of her daughter thanks to her drug addicted booze swilling ex husband, Darrell ( Robert Patrick ). To raise the money for legal fees she take a job as a stripper because she has a boner inducing body and needs to make money fast. That´s the realistic part of the movie because in a lot of other movies you have women with bodies that make photomodels envious struggling with low paid jobs to raise money for whatever when they could make much more money using their mindblowing physique on the stripper pole. Not so Demi Moore who knows her best attributes and starts her new career off with a bang, tearing up the stage and looking amazing doing it. As she struts her stuff on stage and shakes her huge 36C money makers for the leering male clientele like there´s no Tomorrow she quickly becomes the top draw at the club thanks to her well choreographed performances and her unrelenting hardbody.
It all hits the fan one night when some dude and his pals show up for a bachelor party and get into a scuffle with Erin's number one fan who is Congressman Bob Dilbeck ( Burt Reynolds ). Bouncer Shad ( Ving Rhames ) is there to keep Erin safe but the pictures of Dilbeck from that night are used to blackmail him. The lawyer for the guy who got roughed up at the bachelor party wants to blackmail Dilbeck for big bucks, but another guy who hangs out at the club, Jerry ( William Hill ), he wants to blackmail Dilbeck to force him to help Erin get her kid back. Complicating matters further are some dangerous and corrupt businessmen who need to make sure he gets reelected because they've invested a lot of money in him and they're willing to take out anyone who might serve as a bump on his road back to congress, including Erin. The only one who can help our stripper mom is a cop named Lieutenant Garcia ( Armand Assante ), who actually seems interested in sincerely trying to help her get things back on track.
I don´t want to get into more detail for the benefit of those who have not seen it but besides Demi Moore there are a lot of other actresses playing her stripping co - workers like Pandora Peaks, Russ Meyer´s final muse and Rena Riffel who seems to be in every second erotic movie from that time like BOUND CARGO, DARK CONFESSIONS or such erotic masterpieces like UNDERCOVER HEAT starring Athena Massey, SHOWGIRLS starring Elizabeth Berkley and SHOWGIRLS 2 - PENNIES FROM HEAVEN ( I didn´t even know there WAS a Showgirls 2 ! ). She also appeared in mainstream movies like David Lynch´s MULHOLLAND DRIVE but in my opinion you can spend yor time better by watching one of Rena Riffel´s erotic movies.
An actress who also plays a stripper in this movie and who clearly doesn´t get enough screentime is PaSean Wilson as Sabrina Hepburn ( at least I think it´s her ) who has an incredible ass made for that role. I once saw a Making of Striptease where she shows what she´s really capable of but for whatever reason the Making Of is not included on the DVD or Blue Ray.
Here´s a shot of the rest of the female cast of STRIPTEASE and as far as I know these are from left to right Dina Spybey, PaSean Wilson, Pandora Peaks, Kimberly Flynn, Rena Riffel and Barbara Alyn Woods. All of them have some good scenes in the movie but it´s mostly Demi Moore and her hot performances that put STRIPTEASE on my Top Ten Movie Striptease list and rightly so. I mean she´s the real reason why people ( and when I say people I mean guys ) watch the movie and while there are critics who say the movie flopped at the theater this is one of the movies that made its money from videocassettes, DVDs and now Blue Rays. It even came up as the number one guilty pleasure of filmfans at a recent poll on Lovefilm.
Speaking about my Top Ten Movie Striptease list Demi Moore and Halle Berry are always fighting for the top spot. Halle Berry has one of the best bubblebutt´s in showbiz but she did just one - rather short - striptease in LAST BOY SCOUT while Demi Moore had five hot scenes in STRIPTEASE.
Now if Halle does a movie where she strips as often as Demi she will go right back to the number 1 position because her body just doesn´t quit !
I think she has played a stripper in some movies since I wrote this but so far I haven´t had the time to watch them. But Halle still looks fantastic .
Now usually doing the movie cult sirens posts means I have to do a lot of animated GIFs. And I did a few of those because I don´t always find the right ones for the post on the internet. But before starting with my own GIFs I went on the internet because there MUST be a lot of Demi Moore GIFs out there, right ? Well, not as many as I would have liked but a few were in better quality then what I can make so you can enjoy those.
Another reason for making my own animated GIFs - and I already did one of Demi Moore for my Top Ten Movie Striptease list which I included in various posts - is that I can make sure all the GIFs are safe for work.
Because a lot of the Demi Moore STRIPTEASE GIFs I found are not going to be posted here. I know, at this point probably everybody has seen the movie so this should be all right but it is better to be safe than sorry.
And speaking of STRIPTEASE : in my opinion this movie shows how clever Demi has been in choosing her movie projects because she did it not at the beginning of her career when it wouldn't helped much - nor at the end to prove that she still looks good ..... what is often the case with female stars who haven't taken their clothes off before so that in most cases this is rather useless ...... since the viewer has no reference to compare. No, Demi did the movie when she was in absolute top form which is the reason that she will always be remembered like that and the reason she got cool 12.5 mill to show her new and improved 36C - 27 - 36 body.
The only thing I can't wrap my head around is that on german tv the movie is always put under the section crime comedy. Okay, there are funny aspects in the movie but they also have that in LETHAL WEAPON. But I guess when someone as hot as sexbomb Demi Moore takes her clothes off nobody pays much attention to the rest of the movie. And germans are strange to begin with so ...... who cares ?
Another thing Demi will always be remembered for is dumping Bruce Willis for Ashton Kutcher but - she's the ultimate MILF so what did you expect ? I'm all for older women going for younger men, older men going for young hot women ( especially asian cosplayers with big boobs ), younger women
going for older men, younger men going for older women, younger women going for older women, younger men going for older men. We have to forget aboutthe whole age thing in relationships. The important thing is finding a person you are happy with. So, you go Demi. More power to her.
The only regret I have concerning Demi Moore´s movies is that the Evil Witch of the West ( or like other people call her : Drew Barrymoore ) has her claws so deep entrenched in the CHARLIE'S ANGEL franchise that we don't get to see a movie produced by Demi. We all know it would have been better than anything the witch is going to do. I mean the first movie sucked totally and the only good scenes in the second one were the ones with Demi. When I first saw the first movie I was shocked and couldn't believe that there was a mind twisted and sick enough to believe that the evil witch was angel material. Well, as it turned out she was the producer of the flick so she casted herself. Good going. Sorry, gotta barf......
Now back to more pleasant things. Even though STRIPTEASE is my favorite Demi Moore movie she also has great scenes in other movies though they can be rather short like in G. I. JANE. The training montage scene where she is doing push ups is really short but it has it´s moments.
Damn, she does have the longest legs and what an ass on that woman !
Of course this was one of the scenes where I could not find a proper GIF so I had to make them myself which took quite a while. On the plus side I could cut off the unnecessary part of the frame and concentrate on Demi.
Which is what the director should have done here. I mean, this is why guys buy DVDs and high resolution plasma tvs. But where is the zoom ?
Yes, I know that she had a nude shower scene in G. I. JANE but since she only showed her back - all of it, though - and I´m more of a boobs man ( and I actually don´t have a clip from the shower scene to make GIFs ) ...
Another movie I want to mention is 1993´s INDECENT PROPOSAL where Mr. Harrison got to rub his raging Woody all over Demi Moore´s real life blowup lovedoll body much to the chagrin of then husband Bruce Willis.
The movie has an important message though you might think that people already know that you can´t put a price tag on being able to give it to a hot massita like Demi Moore. Actually there are three life lessons here :
For the guys : don´t even think about whoring your girlfriend out because it will eff up things forever. Unless you´re a pimp. Then that´s okay. But if you are not a pimp don´t whore out you girlfriend for money because hot sex with a sexbomb like Demi Moore will get you through financial troubles better than all the money in the world will not get you through not being able to give it to her because you have screwed things up.
For the girls : don´t let your boyfriend whore you out for money. Unless he´s a pimp. Then it´s okay. But if he´s not a pimp he will always think about this and no amount of money will make you two forget this. In the end even if you do it for him he will not appreciate it. Some things you cannot share with another guy and comics and women are among those.
And for the old horny geezer with a truckload of money who makes the indecent proposal : Go for it ! Nope, I got nothing on this one. I mean, you´re old, you have more money than you will ever spend so what is the worst case scenario here ? You croak while an absolute sex goddess like Demi Moore rides you like an electric bull ? There are worse ways to go.
Back to the movie one of Demi´s best scenes is in the shopping mall.
Because of the double mirror I couldn´t cut any parts from the beginning of the scene to get a bigger GIF but Demi really shows a lot of breast.
With the last part I COULD cut some parts and Demi´s shirt is hanging so low she is almost topless in this scene. And what a great pair of melons !
Before we close we come to the obligatory comic related part and it´s not that her ex - husband Bruce Willis looks like a grown up version of Charlie Brown. You may remember that she did a famous cover that was copied on a few comics like John Byrne´s THE SENSATIONAL SHE - HULK 34
issue 2 of Rob Liefeld´s AVENGELYNE from Maximim Press
WITCHBLADE ( sorry, I couldn´t find the number of this issue )
and just recently on issue 3 of IDW´s series ROT & RUIN.
But in these time of sexual ambiguity the boys also want in on the fun so you can feast your eyes on the cover to QUASAR 34 by Greg Capullo
PINKY AND THE BRAIN 26
issue 3 of IDW´s WORMWOOD GENTLEMAN CORPSE
and last but not least AL´S BABY by John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra.
And that is the end of our post. I have managed to put all the good and important animated GIFs on the post and if I have anything else to add I´m sure I will do that over the next few months. Until then Happy B - Day, Demi Moore, many happy returns and thanks for the mammaries !
Now I can finally re - post this every year like the post about cult siren Jamie Lee Curtis who celebrates her birthday on the 22nd this month. But before we come to the video section I really managed to find a link for this post. Like I mentioned Demi Moore is my number one in The Top Ten Movie Striptease list ( at least until Halle Berry does another scorching strip ) and it seems that the reporters who have interviewed all the candidates from that list are really not that creative. How else can you explain these 5 Questions Posed to Everyone Who Plays A Stripper ?
Instead of the usual mix of videos at the end of the post I´m taking the opportunity to post some videos that might be too risquee to put in the regular posts. But if you have held on until now these clips won´t hurt you. Our first video is the famous scene of Ava Cadell getting dressed from the Andy Sidaris movie DO OR DIE. I posted a few GIFs of her in my post about UNSUNG 80s DIRECT TO VIDEO ICON ANDY SIDARIS but I couldn´t fit this video in. Ava really shows some stripper skills here.
Speaking about stripper skills, here are the hot Dana Fleyser and Sabrina Pettinato on a job interview as secretaries ( I don´t know which one is which but I would hire the first one - Dana ? - in a moment - she´s a nympho ). For all my non spanish speaking readers the punch line is that his secretary handpicked these sexbombs so he would stop hitting on her.
Here´s another clip with hot women, I think it´s from BUENAFUENTE. Why do I have the feeling that the guys in Spain understand what tv viewers really want to see ? Here in Germany they always claim to have the best tv shows in the world but they are always copying other shows.
And we´re staying with spanish tv shows. This clip is another callback to an earlier post, the MARLENE MOURREAU SOLO POST from my Casting for the Justice League Movie series. Originally I want to post this video there but I included so many videos of MORTADEL & FILEMON that I couldn´t.
And we´re closing the post with another of the countless Yaya Han Chun Li videos I have bookmarked. It´s just a short one so don´t complain.
