Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This documentary is a promotional vehicle for the Men of the Strip brand, which is focused on presenting men as sexual objects as a way of titillating women. But it also offers viewers a behind-the-scenes look at how much work goes into casting and choreographing professional-level performances, as well as some of the day-to-day challenges performers face when preparing for -- and holding onto -- their coveted spots in the show.

There's some soap opera-like drama, but the real excitement comes from the rehearsals and performances, which combine precise boy-band-dancing styles with sexually charged movements and behavior. Some awkwardly voyeuristic moments result from some of the men's lack of self-confidence and from things such as them getting measured for specific parts of their costumes; this also make things interesting. Ultimately, it's a guilty pleasure without a big payoff.
