A brilliant performance by Gregory Harrison
27 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

From Iowa John Phillips steps off a bus in New York just like every other individual hoping to make himself famous on Broadway with his background experience with a university degree in drama. He meets Sandy, who works at an agency for getting jobs for actors and immediately she falls for John's charm, but he starts to date Mary-Louise instead.Mary-Louise then becomes an attraction for an agent, who casts her instead of John. He decides to take acting lessons, but after hearing critic from his fellow actors he loses faith in acting. In his class he meets Stan (Marc Singer)who takes him to Club Max where John learns that there's a lot of money in stripping for women so he decides to give it a shot. He becomes a hit.After winning the championship as the best male stripper an agent contacts John giving him false hope of becoming famous, but even after John agrees he later learns that no one wants to hire a stripper...

This was a truly great movie to watch. Seeing Gregory Harrison in a brilliant performance, especially his dancing it was just terrific. Marc Singer's character was a junkie, who let fame go to his head and his dress sense was terrible, but hey those were the 80's and I never got a chance to see this movie because I had just started kindergarten at that time so thank god I missed the 80's!Great movie, terrific acting, but terrible dress code.
