A 1996 sex comedy, ''Striptease'' features Erin Grant (played by Creator/DemiMoore), a former FBI secretary, who has taken up work as a stripper at the Eager Beaver in order to earn the money she needs to afford an appeal for child custody. Adored by two of the patrons in particular, one of them an influential Congressman (Creator/BurtReynolds) with an election coming up, a plan emerges to try and blackmail the Congressman about his (ahem) ''avid'' interest in Grant, so that she can afford to keep the custody battle going until she wins.

* HollywoodLaw: A real judge would never even have given a criminal with a record like Darrell's visitation rights, much less sole custody. The book explains it by saying that the local cops buried his record when he agreed to be an informant, which probably wouldn't happen in real life.

* FrivolousLawsuit: The bouncer keeps trying to set things up so that he can launch one in the hopes that he will be given a big cash settlement to shut up.

* {{Irony}}: Erin only became a stripper in the first place because Darrell's crimes got her fired from the FBI. Then the judge awarded sole custody to the criminal because she was a stripper, making her even more dependent upon her income as a stipper to continue the custody battle.

* DoubleStandard: Apparently a convicted felon who uses his daughter as an accessory is somehow less of a bad influence then a mother who dances in a strip club (Something she only does because having a felon for a husband caused her to lose her original job).
