Funny, titillating... An absolute corker !
17 July 2001 | by lionel.willoquetSee all my reviews

Six unemployed Englishmen decide to mount a full strip-tease routine. The English have a flair for setting their outrageous comedies in the most depressing of the social settings. This is confirmed by this story of second-hand Chippendales, a perfect dose of hilarious scenes and tender moments. This is a film which is both moving and euphoric at the same time.
