Painfully Accurate
11 January 2004 | by (Leeds England) – See all my reviews

For our American readers

This is West Yorkshire in the 1970's and 80's as it really was.

Do not watch 'The Full Monty' - that film couldn't be more full of rubbish if it came in its own dustbin.

This is Bradford as it was. I've heard arguments where virtually the same script followed in this movie has been used.

If you don't like swearing and rough sex this movie is not for you, though there is no pornography involved here just accurate observation of a society.

Andrea Dunbar's safety was at risk in Bradford when this came out because there were people who thought that the characters were based on them - men who wore white suits may have had a lot of explaining to do to their wives, as locally this film was believed to be spot on accurate.

This is a very funny film - it is also the British working class shown as many of them really are - being part of that group I can vouch that this is so.
