Disclosure Movie Review Summary

Actors: Michael Douglas, Demi Moore, Donald Sutherland

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Disclosure

Director Barry Levinson, writer Paul Attanasio, and their stars execute a fairly slick rendition of a smarmy tale taken from Michael Crichton's bestselling novel. Tom Sanders, a happily married and successful computer expert (Douglas), expects a promotion but the position is given to Meredith Johnson (Moore), a woman from another plant with whom Sanders once had an affair in his bachelor days. Dangerously ambitious and sexy, Johnson presses Sanders to revive their affair, and sorely tempted, he comes close but breaks it off. She retaliates by charging sexual harassment, and he countersues. Because the company is negotiating a lucrative merger, this internal tussle is highly unwelcome. With the help of a mysterious email friend, Sanders takes on the battle of his career. Supporting actors include Dylan Baker and Dennis Miller. A reasonably well-done movie that leaves a sour taste in one's mouth.
