To be honest the main reason i got this movie is because of John Paul Pitoc who stares in this movie. He was such a great actor in TRICK that i had to get this one. Just Can't Get Enough is a entertaining movie but its not much more than that. This movie is about the original Chipppendale dancers and how greed ends up coming back to haunt them. Very dark at times but in the tradition of most true stories many details are left out. The beautiful mens bodies in this movie are alone worth checking this flick out.

There's something charming about this movie. It's scrappy, rough around the edges, and fun. I wasn't sure what to think with the lame o box, but it's full of surprises. For one, the music. Who knew this movie was packed with wall to wall 80s gems like Wall of Vodoo and Flock of Seagulls? And also, the humor. You couldn't tell by the cover, but this is a really funny story, especially if you appreciate odd human behavior. The marketing guys should be slapped silly, because I passed by the movie a dozen times before finally deciding to purchase it, and I'm glad I did.

The original Chippendale dancers absolutely made history, and Just Can't

Get Enough tells us the story in one of the sexiest, more historically

factual, and well-made movies about the time. It is so much fun to watch

that you will a)wish you were part of the Chippendale team, and b)want to

go out and dance. Think Boogie Nights, Saturday Night Fever, and Studio

54, only less Hollywood, more the true story of a particular place, and a

particular group of dancers -- one that would most certainly go down in

history.

Following the original gang that started the club, and the name

Chippendale, the movie shows us what happened from the beginning, when

nobody knew what they were doing, and everyone just had a dream....a dream

to make a lot of money using their bodies. It was really quite simple. We

see how this plan affected the dancers' personal lives, how the money, and

the fame, started to take over their lives. Next we go through the years

when the club was thriving, when the money was rolling in, and the sex and

drugs were at everyone's disposal. Then, when gay men wanted to come

through the doors to drool over the sexy pecs and big you-know-whats,

things started to go down hill. Corruption took over, people ordered other

people killed, and eventually, the Chippendales were essentially murdered

to the ground. The Chippendale dancers are a part of history -- a part of

sex work history, of gay history, of LA history....of history.

Just Can't Get Enough does a wonderful job telling their story.

Format: DVD
Given the subject matter, you expect this independent film by director/writer David Payne to be full of naked bodies gyrating to the beat of club music--certainly not a serious movie with plenty of bite. But JUST CAN'T GET ENOUGH scores in both directions, and in spite of the abundance of skin on display it is the story rather than the bodies that linger in mind after the movie ends.
As seen through the eyes of club worker Chad (Johnathan Abue, playing a role loosely based on real-life Dan Peterson), JUST CAN'T GET ENOUGH is surprisingly dark and surprisingly factual. Steve Banerjee (Shelley Malil) is just another club owner until he stumbles into the idea of male strippers playing to a women-only audience, and the ringing cash register attracts ambitious and obnoxious choreographer Nick Denoia (Peter Nevargic). Once Denoia gets wise to Banerjee's shady dealings he quickly blackmails the club owner into signing away the touring rights to the show. But when it comes to underhanded manipulations, Banerjee proves Denoia's equal and then some: the sex, drugs, and rock and roll atmosphere of the club quickly gives way to a headlong rush into murder, and the ride is straight down all the way.
Payne's script isn't as tight as it might be, and it sometimes goes off on tangents that add little to the overall impact of the film, but the actors are first rate all the way and increasingly convoluted nature of the conspiracies and counter-conspiracies make for a fascinating ride. And to up the ante, Payne endows the entire film with an unexpectedly dark humor and sense of irony that rings true even in the movie's weaker moments.

Didn't know what to think when I saw the box, but this is one fun little movie. Can't believe this is all true! Very funny with some fine performances, notably the guys who play Nick and Steve. A bit raunchy, so this may not be for everyone.

For the hot guys only.
Sadly the film doesn't stand up to much critical scrutiny. The acting is uneven with some performances being good and others laughable. The script is also uneven, laden with cliches. The costuming and make-up is far worse. I know that this is a period piece set in the early 80's, but the wigs look atrocious -- exactly how they shouldn't -- like wigs!
Yeah, the guys are hot enough and there is even some (but not enough) full frontal male nudity, so it might be worth a second look, but overall the production qualities leave much to be desired.
