Added DiffLines:

* HollywoodLaw: A real judge would never even have given a criminal with a record like Darrell's visitation rights, much less sole custody.

* 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).

A 1996 sex comedy, ''Striptease'' features Erin Grant (played by Demi Moore), 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 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.

While notable for being one of the (several) roles where Demi Moore appears topless, it's probably more memorable for having been panned by the critics and winning several [[GoldenRaspberryAward Razzie Awards]], including "Worst Picture of 1996".

* HotChickInABadassSuit: When we first see Erin dance, she was wearing a suit. Seeing her go from it to a bra and panties was probably one of the only real sexy moments in the film.

* {{Hypocrite}}: The Judge awards sole custody to Darrell because Erin is a stripper. Then he becomes a regular at the strip club just to watch her dance because apparently patronizing a stripper is less sinful than being one.

Added DiffLines:

* {{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.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: In the novel, when Congressman Dilbeck goes to ask the judge handling Grant's divorce case if he would help her out in exchange for a favor - like, say, a federal position - the judge informs Dilbeck he doesn't need Dilbeck's help in that regard. However, he would be able to help Grant out [[{{Squick}} if she gave him a blow job]]. Malcolm, his campaign manager, is not amused: "The mother won't go for it. Hell, I got no morals whatsoever and *I* wouldn't go for it."
