Trivia

Carlyle has stated that it was the hard work of producer Uberto Pasolini and editor Nick Moore that rescued the film. See more »

"Excuse me... nobody said anything to me about the Full Monty"
5 April 2008 | by theaxekeeperSee all my reviews

I remember this movie when it originally came out. It looked interesting, but I was younger at the time and I wasn't allowed to watch R-rated movies. Later, I finally saw this movie about three years ago on HBO. I laughed my a** off. It was so freakin' funny and I still think it is funny. I bought the "Fully Exposed" two disc DVD and I still love this movie. Yeah some people don't understand British humor, but I love it still. I grew up watching Bristish shows like "Mr. Bean" and "Are You Being Served?" I love those shows and I love this movie, I think it is one of the best comedies ever made. I highly recommend it, you will laugh as hard as I did.
