|Source of story
||An original screenplay
||A bunch of redundant Sheffield steelworkers form a strip group, a al “Chippendales”. Over time their rehearsals become public knowledge and they begin to feature in the tabloids. Their private lives do not run smoothly, and one pretends not to have lost his job, apparently leaving for work every morning. The film works towards their first performance in a local club, before an enormous female audience.
||Lots of engaging scenes as the group progress with their plan. Absolutely nothing we would find offensive, even the male nudity is tastefully done.
||A lighthearted film, with lots of classic pop songs as the guys practice. The scene in the labour exchange much shown, and copied – on one occassion including Prince Charles.
