Bracha van Doesburgh,
In this movie Jim Bakkum plays Jorrit who returns to The Netherlands. But back there he finds an eight year old son who is greatly disappointed in his father, who left him behind. The construction company of his best friend Bas isn't doing so well. Then Jorrit and the other guys working for the company of Bas discover that the ladies like their bodies more then the work they are doing. That is the beginning of going into male stripping. But how will their environment react?
There is a story, but the main attention goes to the stripping. The bodies of the male strippers are great to see and to enjoy. I like the acts. There is also humour and emotion, especially at the end between father and son. Director and producer made also earlier movies as Costa! (2001), Volle Maan (2002) and Verliefd op Ibiza (2013).
The character Jim Bakkum plays in the movie is not always sympathetic. Sometimes I asked myself maybe it is to give the film more volume in time. On the other hand a movie is just a little piece from someone's live; we don't see how he became like he is. With my friends I had a big discussion afterwards about the story, being one a divorced woman and the other the child of divorced parents.
The first concept for the movie was obviously to make a Dutch version of Magic Mike (2012). The first scene of Jorrit before the ladies showing his body is almost better then the Coca Cola-light commercial. Martijn Fischer as Bas and Matheu Hinzen as the son I find nice acting.
A somewhat more then little story and a lot of nice male bodies to see. I like the movie anyway. I like handsome men, good humour and a little treat of tears running all over my face. In that the movie is a success.
