Blokes Version Of The Full Monty
24 November 1998 | by See all my reviews

Having heard how great The Full Monty was, I was sadly disappointed when I finally went to see it. The women in the audience thought it was absolutely hilarious, but I only found it mildly amusing. (Maybe being a bloke has something to do with it:-))

A week later though, I went to see Up and Under. What a difference! Good photography, variety of locations, nice use of humour, great actors and altogether a much more rounded film than Monty. (And yes it has got Samantha Janus in it - but that's not the only reason to go see it!) I will be buying *this* on video, but I'll be giving Monty a miss. Shame the soundtrack CD is so pricey.
