Rather dull entertainment
10 June 2002 | by raymond-15See all my reviews

In Los Angeles in 1975 Steve Banerjee buys a run-down night club and converts it into "Chippendales", an entertainment centre with male strip dancers designed to appeal to women and their sexual fantasies.

If one can judge from the noise of the screaming women in the opening scenes, it was a huge success. As the dancers became more polished, they opened up shows in New York and other major cities.

I thought the dance routines lacked a certain zest. The choreography was limited and there could have been more variety in the costumes. This would have added to the interest.

Based on his true life story Banerjee sets out to poison a couple of his dancers who have decided to stage shows in opposition in England.

His plans go awry and Banerjee ends up in court pleading guilty to an earlier murder. Whilst we may have little sympathy for the man himself, the show he created was truly a sensation in its time.

There are other documentaries on this subject which are far more detailed in the police investigations and the cat and mouse game of catching the murderer and consequently far more exciting and interesting.

On the whole I found this film rather dull.
