Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
Robert Carlyle has said that filming was chaotic and that 20th Century Fox were so unhappy with the first cut that they considered scrapping its theatrical release and going straight to video. Carlyle has stated that it was the hard work of producer Uberto Pasolini and editor Nick Moore that rescued the film. See more »
During the dress rehearsal sequence, Dave walks past a couple walking arm-in-arm in the store. We see the same couple again, supposedly days later, in the same position and wearing the same clothes. See more »
still blessing the day I taped it without knowing anything about the film
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.
