This is a good movie most don't understand, but that was made ahead of its time.
4 March 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Strippers to most people means all those who take their clothes off. Unfortunately for those who only have one thing on their minds, expect to be highly dissapointed. Strippers goes above and beyond the titles expectations. Not only does this movie show a sign of the old and the new, but I think it was done ahead of its time. For one, the role reversals the filmmakers uses in challenging the stereotypes we are conditioned to is handled in a way we all should be living our daily existance, with total equality. The film show this guy getting stripped of all he's got, yet those who strip him are usually the people or situations that haunt us in our day to day lives. It's funny, because it is usually women who get sexually harrased, but in this movie it is the protagonist. The comic tones the movie uses to accentuate the dramatic storytelling is corky, but it work to keep the audiences from going under or leaving the theatre depressed. After watching the movie and reading some of its reviews, I realized people are not quite ready for this movie. It's hard to compare this movie due to its originality, but I would suggest watching "The Secret of my Success" & "The Game". The filmmaker is definently one to watch for he is innovative and original. For the most part, he avoids making the same mistakes most movies do. Repackaging, recreating and reorganizing storylines that have been told over and over again.
