    Featured review



    The trailer was much better

    In comedy, they say, timing is everything. This movie works great when boiled down to a 30-second promo, and I was actually pretty excited to see it, even though I've never been a big fan of the Wayans' movies (and haven't even seen most of the films that this one spoofs). Unfortunately, they managed to fit most of the big laughs into that preview, so those moments didn't strike me as hard, and some of them dragged on too long and simply weren't funny at all (like the "invade my space" scene).

    I do think the current rating (2.8) is a bit harsh, though. The movie isn't that bad, it just isn't as funny as I'd hoped it would be.

  • A shot from the film "Male Striptease"

    Six steelworking friends lose their jobs, but they can't find a new one. Then one of them comes up with a brilliant idea: instead of living on welfare and feeling sorry for himself, organize his own erotic show for women. Only now the heroes cannot boast of an excellent figure or knowledge of choreography.

    Don't judge Peter Cattaneo's film by its title: audiences expecting a rock-hard comedy will be disappointed. But those who love restrained British humor, on the contrary, will be very happy. At least the fact that she once received 12 nominations for the BAFTA award speaks about the level of the picture, of which she won four.

Not surprisingly, Billy Elliot was nominated for many important film awards around the world, and later grew into a musical of the same name.

    The picture of the Japanese director Masayuki Suo made a splash in his homeland. Some time later, a Hollywood remake of the same name was released, which looked rather strange outside the national cultural context. The fact is that in Japan, ballroom dancing is considered a very compromising hobby, which cannot be said about the United States at all.
