Storyline

While "The Full Monthy" was a one-off stunt in the film of that name, here a self-organized group of unemployed miners from the industrial wasteland of northern England make it their profession to tour the country by bus, and perform in Chippendales-style, both individually and together in a grand finale. The physical selection may be less strict and the training more rudimentary, they have enough British stage flair to make their all-female audience go absolutely wild with sexual excitement, most of them especially for Tony, the 'baby' of the bunch. There's also backstage scenes, right into their shower, and the business side of the enterprise. Written by KGF Vissers

One of the best!
12 September 1999 | by See all my reviews

Before there was 'The Full Monty' there was 'The Bare Necessities': a gang of lands who hapless find that they've become male strippers. A gritty tale of miners not the more cavalier unemplyed charaters of Monty, for me this is the real one! Excellent performances from all the cast, especially William Ash, who never disappoints - a talent to watch for the future!
