Synopsis

After losing the woman of his dreams, Merlin (Spence Moore II) moves to Las Vegas to pursue work as a magician, only to get hired as the frontman in a revival of the notorious Black male stripper crew, the Chocolate Chips.

Luther a.k.a. "Mr. Big" (Wesley Snipes), "Sexy Slim" Pastor Amos (J.B. Smoove), "Da Body" Desmond (Faizon Love), "Da Face" Tyriq (Bill Bellamy), and "Dr. X" Xander (Gary Owen) are now broke and broken. The old, domesticated, out-of-shape Chips put aside former conflicts and reunite to save the hotel they used to perform in while helping Merlin win back his girl.
