The Full Monty


Dole queue, Job Club, domestic discord - the world is falling apart for six unemployed Sheffield steelworkers. But one of them has had enough. Determined to beat the system, Gaz (Robert Carlyle) hatches a plan that will make him and his friends serious rich - and quickly! He convinces them that a strip routine will bring in the punters, especially when that act reveals the ultimate - the Full Monty! As our local heroes prepare for the big night word gets round that a very special act is about to storm the clubs of steel city.

Mark Andy, William Snape, Steve Huison, Tom Wilkinson, Paul Baker, Hugo Speer, Lesley Sharp, Emily Woof, Deirdre Costello, Paul Butterworth, Dave Hill, Bruce Jones, Andrew Livington, Vinny Dhillon.

Director Peter Cattaneo combines black comedy, roaring hilarity and all the absurdity, heartache and pathos of six men trying to keep body, soul and dignity together. Well, just about! The most successful British film of all time, The Full Monty, also boasts a superb soundtrack, with hits by Hot Chocolate and Tom Jones.

Went to see this in the cinema with friends when it first came out. I thought it was really great, and really funny. Seen it a few time since and still thing its really good!!!
