It's a familiar show-biz routine but one that's spangled with happy surprises and sharp acting.

Michael Dequina

Leaves the audience smiling and giggling, all the while painting a convincing and touching portrait of the downtrodden in England.

A crowd-pleasing blue-collar comedy, half funny and half sad.

Largely sweet and insubstantial, not so much "funny" as it is charming and grin-making.

The premise of this British comedy, out-of-work male strippers, is contrived and calculated, but the film exudes charm and optimism.

The briskly paced, high-spirited movie is complemented by a funny score that includes the old disco hit You Sexy Thing.

This is a funny film - in part because these guys make the best of a horrible situation - most of Sheffield being thrown out of work when the steelworkers are… More

This movie is nothing short of incredible. Predictable and obvious, yes; but amazing all the same. It is certainly a feel-good movie, and pretty shallow, as… More
