2 hours of my life I'm not getting back...By PaddyP (5 reviews) , 07 Feb 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]I rented this for a laugh to watch with my girlfriend... Turns out the joke was on us. I thought (judging by the trailer) this would be a romcom-esk movie (which I'm happy enough with) but it ended up being an almost painfully bad look into the *gritty world of male stripping* (really?!). The film is shot in such a way as to try to emphasize this gritty feel, be it the poor audio, going nowhere conversations or bleached look to the whole film. We had to force ourselves to continue watching in the hope of some closure to the terrible storyline... Yep, you don't get that either btw.
Verdict: The strip scenes were a relief from the rest of this abysmal film (this coming from a straight guy).

Waste of timeBy Charlene84 (10 reviews) , 03 Aug 2013Awful awful film, pointless predictable and just a complete waste of time, an hour or so I will never get back! Don't bother! I was falling asleep!! Awful ending to it as well
Too Sleazy..By a customer , 02 Aug 2013This film is based too much on sex and drugs and I wasnt a fan of that. I know thats the whole point of the story, but it just felt sleazy, even before that part of the story unfolds. I was expecting at least half the movie to just be light hearted and with a lot of eye candy stripping off, but it was just very sleazy and seedy the whole way through. Put me off ever wanting a male stripper as it was more than just having a stare and a cheer over hot half naked men, would definately count as cheating on your partner in my book!
Great cast, interesting idea. Worth a watch, Right?!By rjc_43 (1 review) , 31 Jul 2013A very promising cast, and a novel idea to actually see blokes taking off their clothes rather than females, yet, somehow, it seemed as if the actors were left to make up their own script and direction. The casual ease with which, what can only be described as flirty banter, was passed back and forth between Channing and the female lead unfortunately didn't come across as natural. Rather more like they'd just learned their lines that morning. For a director who has pulled the Oceans trilogy to great heights (brilliant casts, brilliant scripts, easy watching), it surprises me that he didn't manage to create, at the very least, an interesting watch. Verdict? Worth a watch if you're scraping the barrel for things to add to your watch list, or are gagging to see a few blokes topless and couldn't quite bring yourself to google the images instead.
OK to watch if nothing else onBy Sooz77 (1 review) , 28 Jul 2013Its just OK the story leaves a lot to be desired and yes its just basically about male strippers going about their lives and little else
womens filmBy a customer , 21 Jul 2013If you want to watch a few men stripping then this is the film for you just don't expect anything else like a good story line or anything. It's just an hour n 40 minutes of men stripping nothing else really. Rubbish storyline n when I thought it was finally about to get good it finished.
