Goofs

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 »

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.
