Overview

Michael Douglas runs afoul of a treacherous supervisor in this film version of Michael Crichton's novel. Douglas plays Tom Sanders, an executive at DigiCom, a leading computer software firm. DigiCom is about to launch a new virtual reality-based data storage system that is expected to revolutionize the industry, and Bob Garvin Donald Sutherland, the owner of the company, is in the midst of negotiating a merger that could bring $100 million into the firm. However, while Tom is expecting a promotion, he discovers the position has been given instead to a new hire, Meredith Johnson Demi Moore, with whom Tom had an affair years ago, before he was married. After her first day of work, Meredith invites Tom up to her office and makes a concerted attempt to seduce him; while Tom doesn't fight off her advances with very much gusto at first, eventually he decides things have gone too far and leaves in a huff. The next morning, Meredith accuses Tom of sexual harassment, and he realizes this was merely a power ploy to get him out of DigiCom for good; Tom, determined to fight, files a counter-suit, which makes him no friends at the company, since rocking the boat too hard could very well scotch the merger. Dennis Miller also appears as one of Tom's wise-cracking co-workers.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Karl Williams
An excellent cast of solid supporting players and a notable roster of talent behind the scenes transforms a Michael Crichton novel with a questionable premise and some hackneyed plot developments into a sturdy, attractive thriller. While the basic story of the source material doesn't stand up to close scrutiny, director Barry Levinson and screenwriter Paul Attanasio have populated their tale with enough dazzling high-tech gadgetry, office intrigue, and thriller-style convolutions to distract viewers. It's a cinematic shell game to be sure, but it makes for an enjoyable romp of a film. Michael Douglas has become the go-to guy when a big-budget film needs a white-male cultural scapegoat, while Demi Moore shines as an aggressive, manipulative female executive, in marked contrast to her most recent role as a naïve wife in Indecent Proposal (1993). The leads are ably supported by trustworthy character actors such as Dylan Baker, Roma Maffia, Donald Sutherland, and Donal Logue in the service of a story that at times veers into the territory of delightful absurdity. It doesn't all make sense, but Disclosure is a guilty pleasure.

    Suspenseful Yet Credible

    Disclosure is an adaptation of Michael Crichton's novel by the same name and as such carries with it the same deficiencies in plot. The acting is, as expected, superb and though the plot is credible, the intricate conspiracy against Douglas is at times not entirely credible or realistic.

    Still, the film presents the issue of sexual harassment in context and in accurate light such that it provokes thought on a significant and relevant social problem. Where the film lacks in plot it more than makes up in suspense. This film keeps you on the edge of your seat up until the final moments. And as in real life, we learn that good does not always conquer evil; sometimes it just makes evil take a slight vacation.
