Did You Know?

Robert Carlyle has said that filming was chaotic and that 20th Century Fox were so unhappy with the first cut that they considered scrapping its theatrical release and going straight to video. Carlyle has stated that it was the hard work of producer Uberto Pasolini and editor Nick Moore that rescued the film.See more »

exceedingly likeable, 4 January 2000
Author: dan-391 from petaluma, ca

One thing I've always appreciated in British films is that the actors look like Real People. I don't mean unattractive, but just normal everyday looking, unlike Hollywood actors who are exceedingly pretty with perfect teeth and stylish clothes, and unlimited bank accounts, no matter what their occupation. In this film, a group of unemployed steelworkers decide to put on an amateur strip show to make ends meet. It is presented as a comedy, but it does have some very moving moments, as it shows the despair and desolation of unemployment. And it subtly displays the economic conditions of Thatcher's England, where entire industries were shut down, taking jobs and local economies along with them. As in other British films, the characters seem real, like people we would know if we lived in their town. I can picture having a pint down at the local pub with Gaz and Gerald more than, say, Tom Cruise.
