‘This One’s for the Ladies’ Film Review: Male Stripper Doc Has Plenty of Nudity But Not Much Meat on Its Bones

‘This One’s for the Ladies’ Film Review: Male Stripper Doc Has Plenty of Nudity But Not Much Meat on Its Bones
The best description of director Gene Graham’s (“The Godfather of Disco”) stripper documentary, “This One’s for the Ladies,” comes from one of the film’s subjects, naughty dancer enthusiast Michele Moore, who says, in an exasperated tone, “It’s a lot.”

That’s an understatement because she’s referring to gyrating men who lay their penises on her head, twerk in her face, and grind up on the stage in front of an adoring crowd. It’s excessive, over-the-top, and somewhat uncomfortable, and yet she absolutely loves it. That kind of oxymoronic fascination prevalent among many fans is what Graham aims to explore in a film that winds up increasingly hallow and frustrating to watch.

There are times when “This One’s for the Ladies” looks like it was shot by a random peeper with an old cameraphone, taping the goings on at a lascivious nightclub from a vacant corner in the room,

Jennifer Lopez's 11-Year-Old Daughter Belts Out Alicia Keys, and My Goosebumps Have Goosebumps
Jennifer Lopez's talent runs in the family. The 49-year-old pop star recently shared a behind-the-scenes look at an otherwise hectic weekend on her YouTube channel, which included a little vocal rehearsal with her 11-year-old daughter, Emme. In between shooting her movie Hustlers and performing her song "Medicine" live for the first time, Jennifer spent time with Emme by the piano and listened to her sing Alicia Keys.

"You do it in the original key, right?" Jennifer asked as she encouraged Emme to perform. Emme started off tentatively but quickly gained confidence while locking eyes with her mom. After a stellar cover, she embraced Jennifer as the room applauded. "We should have her come out and do something on tour!" Jennifer said. Maybe Emme's twin brother, Max, will join as a backup dancer - we already know he's got the moves!
