    Synopsis


    The Full Monty
    Six guys with nothing left to lose try losing their clothing for fun and profit in this international hit comedy. Gaz (Robert Carlyle) and Dave (Mark Addy) are two former steelworkers in the British industrial town of Sheffield who have been devastated by the economic downturn in their community. Gaz is threatened with losing visitation rights with his son if he can't pay his child support, while Dave feels emasculated by his inability to support his wife. One day, Gaz stops by a local pub for a drink and is told it's women only tonight -- the Chippendales male exotic dancing troupe is playing, and they are demanding a hefty cover charge. Gaz decides there's nothing a bunch of pantywaists from America can do that he and his pals can't do better, and decides to form his own crew of male strippers, called "Hard Steel." However, the local talent pool leaves a bit to be desired. Gaz isn't bad looking, but Dave is a bit heavy and very self conscious about it. Horse (Paul Barber) was probably hot stuff at Soul Night in the mid-70's, but his joints don't move like they used to. Guy (Hugo Speer) can't dance to save his life, but makes the troupe because ... well, let's say he and Dirk Diggler would have a lot to say to each other. Lomper (Steve Huison) is sometimes too busy attempting suicide to practice. And Gerald (Tom Wilkinson), their choreographer, isn't much on male exotic dancing -- ballroom dancing is more his speed. While "Hard Steel"'s performances are more amusing then enticing, for the first time since they lost their jobs the men have a reason to get up in the morning; joining the group has given them a circle of friendship, and a renewed sense of purpose. Combining broad comedy with believable and well-drawn characters, The Full Monty was a major box-office hit both in England and the United States and was nominated for Academy Awards as Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      I love the story of hopefulness as these guys, from different walks of life, bond by thinking they're going to make a lot of money stripping. Every time I see Robert Carlyle, Tom Wilkinson or Mark Addy in any other movie/TV show I think about how good they are in this movie.

      This movie is SO funny. I've seen it 50+ times and laugh myself silly every time. I took it to the delivery room with me to keep my mind off of labor pains. It also has a great soundtrack. I'm going to buy a copy for a friend for Christmas in case she ever needs a laugh---you should too!

      I love the odd sense of humor in this movie. I used to watch Monty Python's Flying Circus when I was younger and this is just like watching those guys all over again!

      An enjoyable film that works as a comedy and as a social commentary. Good performances by several well known British actors. A very nice blu-ray transfer too.
