In the funeral scene, Lomper is playing the hymn "Abide with Me" on cornet, and his fingers are clearly visible playing the notes. He plays every note correctly until the last line, where he swaps the two notes on "[ab]-ide with [me]" - he should be playing straight down the scale Bb,A,G,F and in fact plays Bb,G,A,F. See more »
Anti-wrinkle cream there may be, but anti-fat-bastard cream there is not.

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.
