The premise of this British comedy, out-of-work male strippers, is contrived and calculated, but the film exudes charm and optimism.
When it was first released in 1997, it made quite a name for itself, arguably in large part to the fact of its subject matter. A decade later, the shock factor is gone and what's left is a genuinely funny little film.
