The Full Monty


The Full Monty is a 1997 British comedy film. It tells the story of six unemployed men, four of them steel workers, who decide to form a male striptease act (à la Chippendale dancers) in order to gather enough money to get somewhere else and for main character Gaz to be able to see his son. Despite being a comedy, the film also touches on serious subjects such as unemployment, fathers' rights, depression, impotence, working class culture and suicide. The film was rated a 15 in Britain for frequent strong language.

The Full Monty is set in Sheffield, England, and stars Robert Carlyle, Mark Addy, William Snape, Steve Huison, Tom Wilkinson, Paul Barber, and Hugo Speer. The screenplay was by Simon Beaufoy. The film was directed by Peter Cattaneo.

Very cute, very funny, very touching. You quickly fall in love with these characters, their modest goals, and the absurd plan they devise in order to achieve these goals. And any movie that can send you laughing right into the credits is a great comedy.


i'm very surprised it was nominated for BP, though. when the Academy goes for British films, they usually don't go for the ones this low-key and simple. But I'm happy it got some recognition.
