* FilmOfTheBook - Based on a novel by the same name, written by CarlHiaasen. One of the concessions that the critics give is that the screenplay is pretty faithful to the book.

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.
