Great movie for nights when you don't want to think too much
2 December 2001 | by (Lawrenceville, GA) – See all my reviews

Gregory Harrison is great as the naive, hopeful college drama star trying to make it big on Broadway, and Marc Singer is equally great as the disillusioned never-was turned male stripper. Harrison's John Phillips was the star of all the college productions, and he can't understand why Broadway producers aren't breathlessly awaiting his appearance in their theatres. Stan (Marc Singer) has been there already, and lives in a fog of drugs and adulation from the strip club patronesses to forget that the producers didn't want him. Watching John start down the same path, then realize the error of that path is an excellent way to spend an evening. Not terribly intellectual, but very good. Get the European version if possible. It has the parts the American censors cut out.
