Goofs

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 »

Quotes

[before the first rehearsal Gaz has hurtled off to find Dave, finding him working as a security guard in Asda]
Gaz: Dave! What are you doing?
Dave: What's it look like?
Gaz: We're on in three days time, where the fuck are you?
Dave: I'm here, working, earning, that's where. Not pissing about! End of chat!

A Great British Comedy
21 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

Robert Carlyle and Mark Addy combine with a great support cast to bring one of the freshest comedies in years to the big screen. Set in Sheffield after the great 'City of Steel' Days, there are more people in the dole queue, than out at work.

Struggling for money the pair decide that if the Chippendale's can get the kit off and make a packet, then why can't they. They recruit some more strippers, all desperate for some cash, and promise the city the Full Monty. Now all they need is to learn how to dance, learn how to overcome there fear of the Full Monty and sell some tickets.

This film is a very funny view of a struggling community in what was once a thriving city. Great characters, slick and realistic dialogue and great direction, this is one of the finest British comedies ever.

8/10
