When a Miami mom loses her job as a secretary, her lowlife ex-husband is awarded custody of their young daughter. Taking a job as a stripper to raise enough money for a court appeal, she unwittingly attracts the obsessive and insistent attentions of a crazed, slavering U.S. Congressman. Adapted from the comic novel by Carl Hiaasen. The uncut version contains footage not seen theatrically in North America.
Although sensible, mild-mannered Erin Grant has a great face and body, she's an unlikely candidate to become a stripper. That all changes when she loses custody of her young daughter to her lowlife ex-husband, and needs some quick cash for an appeal. So she begins working at the Eager Beaver strip club -- and finds her life changed forever.
This is because the club attracts a wide array of oddballs, including some of the strippers, a tough bouncer with a frightening get-rich quick scheme, and Senator/sex fiend David Dilbeck, who becomes wildly obsessed with Erin after seeing her perform. Furthermore, Erin becomes involved in a blackmail scheme, a kidnapping, and even underworld types -- who soon want Erin dead.
Will Erin survive all of this craziness' And will she regain custody of her beloved child'
