Product Description

It's the heady days of the 1980s and business is booming at the Chippendales nightclub in Los Angeles, California. But behind the success lies a dark and murky world in which lust, greed and murder all vie for a place in the hearts and minds of the wayward revellers. Drugs, sex, money, alcohol, cocaine and whisky all play their part as the lid is shifted on the shocking truth behind the male striptease phenomenon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Doing It The American Way 2 Jan 2004
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Timid recreation of Chippendales murder-plot 27 Feb 2002
By Libretio VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
JUST CAN'T GET ENOUGH

(USA - 2000)

DVD aspect ratio: 1.33:1
Theatrical aspect ratio: 1.85:1
Theatrical soundtrack: Dolby Stereo SR

The Chippendales phenomenon was established in 1979 by Somen 'Steve' Banerjee (played here by Shelley Malil), a financially independent immigrant from a high-caste Indian family, who pursued the American dream by opening a male strip-club in a quasi-industrial area of Los Angeles. Following initial successes (marred only by battles with fire-safety officers due to over-crowding), Banerjee hired former Broadway choreographer Nick DeNoia (Peter Nevargic) to design dance routines for the strippers, which transformed the business into a multi-million dollar operation, until a power-struggle between the ambitious DeNoia and the socially awkward Banerjee led to an acrimonious split. Fuelled by paranoia and jealousy, Banerjee arranged DeNoia's murder, a crime for which he might have gone unpunished if the FBI hadn't learned of his subsequent plot to assassinate the businessmen behind a rival male dance troupe, thereby eliminating his only competition...

Set in the hedonistic days of the 1980's, before AIDS curbed the excesses of the sexual revolution and when get-rich-quick schemes were two-a-penny, writer-director Dave Payne's account of the rise and fall of the Chippendales contains all the necessary ingredients for an impressive true-crime drama: Sex, drugs and skulduggery, and an eccentric cast of characters whose lives are powered to the incessant beat of 1980's synth-rock and disco music, all of which takes place against the backdrop of a stage-show in which some of America's most beautiful men strip down to their bare essentials in front of crowds of baying women.

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining movie, but these Mens bodies are way better! 27 Mar 2003
By Porfie Medina - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Soundtrack 17 Oct 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wow. Sexy, accurately historical, moving, get-up-and-dance, all in one! 7 Jan 2006
By queer movie lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
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. The acting

is great, the story is historically correct, the message very powerful.

Get this movie and learn how, for the Chippendale dancers, they just

couldn't get enough. (And it's definitely sexy enough that you won't be

able to get enough either!)

Yes, there are plenty of naked bodies (both male and female) on display, but ultimately JUST CAN'T GET ENOUGH is less about sex than it is about an extremely unsavory and seldom acknowledged side of the American dream, a drive for success that flattens every moral obstacle it meets. In one particularly memorable scene, Banerjee snarls that Joe Kennedy built his fortune on illegal bootleg liquor and even sitting President Reagan lied to congress to finance a secret war; bending the law is the American way. But not every one can get away with it--and even for those who do there is a price. In this instance the price ranges from emotional deadness to drug addiction to accidental incest to blood. And every one has to pay.

5.0 out of 5 stars gem in the rough 14 April 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
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.
