Overview

Six guys with nothing left to lose try losing their clothing for fun and profit in this international hit comedy. Gaz Robert Carlyle and Dave Mark Addy are two former steelworkers in the British industrial town of Sheffield who have been devastated by the economic downturn in their community. Gaz is threatened with losing visitation rights with his son if he can't pay his child support, while Dave feels emasculated by his inability to support his wife. One day, Gaz stops by a local pub for a drink and is told it's women only tonight -- the Chippendales male exotic dancing troupe is playing, and they are demanding a hefty cover charge. Gaz decides there's nothing a bunch of pantywaists from America can do that he and his pals can't do better, and decides to form his own crew of male strippers, called "Hard Steel." However, the local talent pool leaves a bit to be desired. Gaz isn't bad looking, but Dave is a bit heavy and very self conscious about it. Horse Paul Barber was probably hot stuff at Soul Night in the mid-70's, but his joints don't move like they used to. Guy Hugo Speer can't dance to save his life, but makes the troupe because ... well, let's say he and Dirk Diggler would have a lot to say to each other. Lomper Steve Huison is sometimes too busy attempting suicide to practice. And Gerald Tom Wilkinson, their choreographer, isn't much on male exotic dancing -- ballroom dancing is more his speed. While "Hard Steel"'s performances are more amusing then enticing, for the first time since they lost their jobs the men have a reason to get up in the morning; joining the group has given them a circle of friendship, and a renewed sense of purpose. Combining broad comedy with believable and well-drawn characters, The Full Monty was a major box-office hit both in England and the United States and was nominated for Academy Awards as Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
The Full Monty is a pleasant blend of British working-class comedy and socially conscious drama similar in tone and theme to Raining Stones (1993) or Brassed Off (1996). Thoroughly entertaining, the film also has a deeper message about the economic dilemma between need and self-respect. Though many films have featured protagonists caught between survival and crime, this may be the first film to subject its hero to the choice between survival or stripping. Is the emasculation of poverty worse than the emasculation of revealing it all in a pub? It's a light question, but director Peter Cattaneo and screenwriter Simon Beaufoy generate enough human drama to connect with American as well as English audiences. Robert Carlyle's warm turn as the down-and-out leader of the bunch of low-rent Chippendales was a revelation to audiences who knew him best as the psychopathic Begbie from Trainspotting (1996). The low-budget production was a surprise hit with the American Motion Picture Academy, nominated for four Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

    Hilarious!!!

    This movie completely caught me by surprise. Someone had recommended it to me so when I was at the movie rental store, I decided to watch it. A couple of weeks later, I bought it. I would highly recommend this movie.

    My Best in Theater Experience

    I saw a sneak-preview, midnight showing of Batman, complete with all the hype and rowdy crowds, but it paled in comparison to The Full Monty. I saw the film on a Saturday night, maybe the second weekend of its release, and the experience was unbelievable. The audience laughed hysterically throughout. And at the end, when all was bared and triumph over despair achieved, the entire house gave a raucous standing ovation. Let me repeat that. The entire house gave a raucous standing ovation. How often do you see that at a movie theater!!! The characters are endearing in their humor, ambition and flaws. The music is incredible (both the classics and the original score). If you're offended by nudity, don't worry about it. There's only very brief, obscured posterior nudity. My mother didn't want to see it because she thought it would be all about nudity and stripping. That couldn't be further from the truth. It's all about relationships: parents and children, husbands and wives, friends, lovers. When my sister and I made my mother watch it, she loved it. I can't recommend this movie enough. The only possible bad note is that if you have a hard time understanding English accents, you may have to watch it twice to catch all the lines (or watch some Monty Python first). Of course, wathing it twice isn't a bad thing in the least. (An extra-special recommendation for anyone who lived near Pittsburgh in the 70s.)

    The Sexiest ''Regular Guys'' Movie Ever

    This bunch of unemployed, unmuscled guys had me rooting for them right from the beginning. Robert Carlyle and his gang of misfit dancers lit up the screen. I wished I was in their audience to cheer them on. They were wonderful!!! I'd rather see them then Chip'n'dale dancers any old time.
