Quotes

Reg: [after failing an audition] I'm sorry. Sorry. I thought I'd give it a go. I got a bit desperate. You know how it is. I can't even take me kit off properly, can I?
Gaz: You're all right, Reg. There's a cup of tea, if you like.
Reg: No, thanks. I've got the kids outside.
Gaz: Well, bring 'em in.
Reg: Nah. This is no place for kids.

exceedingly likeable
4 January 2000 | by Joe CuneoSee all my reviews

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.
