Trivia

The title is a British slang phrase meaning "the whole thing." According to screenwriter Simon Beaufoy, US studio executives found it perplexing since nobody in the film is named Monty. See more »

Goofs

When Dave chases Gaz out of the store much has been made of how out of shape Dave is, yet after running at full speed for quite a distance Dave is not out of breath in the close-ups. See more »

Quotes

Gaz: So, uh, Horse... What can you do?
Horse: I dunno, really... Let's see, there's the, uh... The bump, the stomp, the bus stop... Me breakdancing days are probably over, but there's always the funky chicken.

still blessing the day I taped it without knowing anything about the film
4 December 2002 | by (Hungary) – See all my reviews

I saw The Full Monty about a month ago on TV and as soon as I saw it was coming up, I rushed to find a blank videotape for it. I didn't know what to expect but somehow I had this feeling that I HAD to tape it. And blimey, was it worth it! Now I watch the film every weekend and I enjoy it just as much as I did the first time I saw it. I love its style, its humour, everything. It's nice to see average people whose only goal was to get a job and in order to achieve it, they're willing to do anything. I've purchased the soundtrack as well, and I can clearly state that it's worth buying if you like 70's music. I think it's become my favourite film. It's so simple and that's why I like it, because at the same time it's greatly enjoyable.
