Stuck in a nowhere town, with a dead end job at the local steel mill, two Australian brothers look for a way out. One turns to petty crime, the other to tap-dance. When the factory closes down, the quarreling siblings pull together to raise funds for the unemployed by bringing other dancers together for a blowout dance performance.
Containing the same theme, but lacking the humor or intensity of “The Full Monty,” “Bootmen” is rather disappointing. Of course the family pulls together in the end, but there’s a lot of strife in the home up until the big show.
