In order to help the actors with the stress of the final scene all were allowed alcohol on set. The kiss Robert Carlyle puts on his son was not scripted resulting in the actors' perplexed reaction. See more »

Ey up, someone's coming.
Aye, not so bad.

Not so bad? Not so bad? That's not much of a chuffing SOS is it?

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.
