Beca, a freshman at Barden University, is cajoled into joining The Bellas, her school's all-girls singing group. Injecting some much needed energy into their repertoire, The Bellas take on their male rivals in a campus competition.
A number of American cinemas had special leaflets printed containing translations to some of the British slang left in the U.S version of the film so that audiences would be able to follow the dialog more easily. See more »
At no stage do they perform what they have rehearsed, or rehearse what they eventually perform. This "goof" is common in many backstage musicals, where the numbers shown being rehearsed rarely match the final product. See more »

I know. You could stand in middle of road and have a mate run smack into you right fast.
Haven't got any mates...
Gary 'Gaz' Schofield:
Listen to you, we just saved your fucking life so don't tell us we're not your mates, all right?
Gary 'Gaz' Schofield:
Thanks. Thanks a lot.
Yeah, me and all, I'd run ya down as soon as look at ya.
Oh aye? Cheers.

What's one to do after the factory closes and you're left unemployed? For six Brits, the answer is quite simple: go "The Full Monty" (which means "all the way"). Led by the soft-spoken Gaz (Robert Carlyle), they decide to become male strippers. Along the way, some unexpected things happen, but it's a great movie from start to finish. And it had one of the best soundtracks that I've ever heard (I'd never even heard "You Sexy Thing" before I saw this movie). With top-notch performances by Carlyle, Mark Addy, Tom Wilkinson, Steve Huison, Paul Barber and Hugo Speer, this is one movie that everyone should see. It's not only funny, but takes a look at the dying dream of eternal success.
