Storyline

STRIP CLUB KING - Loved..Admired..Hated!!! Charismatic to some and revolting to others. Joe Redner owns one of the most famous nude clubs in America, the Mons Venus. Although Joe has been fighting the city of Tampa since the 1970s, Joe Redner and the Mons Venus came into the national spotlight in 1999 when Tampa's City Council tried to ban lap dancing. The city ordinance passed, but not without an explosive fight that made national headlines with feature stories on ABC's "20/20" and Comedy Central's "The Daily Show". Joe redner has been called many things including pimp, pervert, patriot, philanderer, politician, instigator, intellectual, self- promoter, humanitarian, hypocrite, publicity hound, pig, exploiter, criminal, narcissist, hero and genius. This is the first documentary to explore the life of legendary Strip Club King, Joe Redner, also known as the father of the lap dance. Directed by Shelby McIntyre and produced by Chris Woods, this documentary explores the man that has been... Written by Shelby McIntyre

Very amateur & somehow made boring.
12 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

You would think the story of Joe Redner should be interesting, but instead it can't even hold your interest. There is a great story here about Freedom of Speech, the local Gov't, stripping, & much more! It wasn't that it was terrible, it was just done poorly & made uninteresting. For example you would think that things such as making sure when you are interviewing someone, you would make sure that there AREN'T Planes flying up above! Talk about ruining not only the impact of what's being said, but basic sound audio quality. It's not a big thing, but it's film-making 101! Some of the interviews are painfully boring & the interviewer didn't seem to really have any prepared questions ready. I don't know if that's true or not, but c'mon now. I wouldn't really recommend this unless you are a huge fan of Joe Redner or perhaps live in the Tampa area, otherwise you'll be pretty bored.
