Trivia

The original cut of the film was too short, so three months after shooting ended, some more footage was shot, including the football/exercise montage. Robert Carlyle is not in that sequence; the actor was working on another project by then. See more »

Goofs

another great comedy from England
28 September 2005 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

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.
