    A cute little movie. Far from being perfect, but nevertheless, quite entertaining.
    The plot is basically six unemployed men who wish to make some quick money by putting on an all the way striptease.
    I personally found the movie a tad too short.
    The video transfer is ok, but there are several scratches and the hues are a bit de-saturated. The de-saturation does, however, increase the grey atmosphere of the entire movie (which is probably intentional).
    The DD 2.0 soundtrack is very simple. OK, so it`s not a full blown DD 5.1, but it is very adequate for this kind of a movie. Besides, the songs sound very nice despite the lack of the DD 5.1 soundtrack.
    The menus are basic and dull.
    The disk has no extras to offer at all.
    Bottom line - a nice little basic movie for the entire family to watch.
