"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."
Wow. Sexy, accurately historical, moving, get-up-and-dance,

"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
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!)"
Entertaining movie, but these Mens bodies are way better!

"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."
