Sechs arbeitslose Stahlarbeiter in der mittelenglischen Stadt Sheffield lassen sich vom Erfolg amerikanischer Striptease-Tänzer animieren, ihre leeren Taschen auch mit dem Ablegen der Kleider zu füllen. Bis aus der bunt zusammengewürfelten Gruppe aber eine Go-Go-Truppe wird, sind nicht nur körperliche Hürden zu überwinden. Eine warmherzige, nuancenreiche Komödie voller Witz, Humor und leisen sozialkritischen Tönen, die mit bewundernswertem Respekt und groer Sympathie ihre Figuren nie für derbe Scherze mibraucht, sondern ihr komisches Potential aus der aufmerksamen Beobachtung von Widersprüchen schöpft. Amüsant und kurzweilig handelt das Erstlingswerk von der Kraft schlitzohriger Leichtigkeit ebenso wie von heilsamen Änderungen im männlichen Selbstbild. [film-dienst]
