Product Overview

Robert Carlyle (Trainspotting) and Tom Wilkinson (The Last Kiss) lead a hilarious cast in this "irresistible tale" (The New York Times) which is now bursting at the seams with gi-normous special features, making it the definitive Full Monty package! With two commentary tracks, ten never-before-seen deleted scenes, ten all-new featurettes, a "music machine" to isolate your favorite song segments and much more, this is not just an "engrossing study of the male ego stripped bare" (USA Today), it's a "comedy that bares its soul...and more" (Time)!

When the steel mills of Sheffield, England are closed, Gaz (Carlyle) and thousands of other workers are left unemployed and unsure of their roles of men. Depressed and facing a custody battle for his son, Gaz happens across a show of male strippers...and the answer to his problems is laid bare! Recruiting a ragtag group of friends into an unsightly stripper group, Gaz is putting on a show of his own to get his life back on track. But to ensure their performance is a firm success, the men will have to leave it all on the stage!

ReviewSource Spirituality & Practice
Review Gaz (Robert Carlyle) and his best friend Dave (Mark Addy) are unemployed steelworkers in the economically depressed English town of Sheffield...Similar in spirit and spunk to Brassed Off, this rowdy comedy directed by Peter Cattaneo captures and conveys the ways in which joblessness contributes to a malaise of body, mind, and spirit. When there seems to be no way out of hopelessness and helplessness, Gaz inspires his mates with his wild and crazy idea. In the process of rehearsing and planning the event, these middle-agers fashion a new sense of community and camaraderie. The old barriers that separated management and labor are tossed aside. They are able to bare their bodies because their souls have been revivified...The Full Monty is a funny and fetching celebration of the resiliency of the human spirit. Here imagination and risk are the catalysts to soul-making.

Review The Full Monty is the third recent dramatic comedy to emerge from the United Kingdom to illustrate the effects of unemployment on the individual and the family. Like Brassed Off! and The Van, The Full Monty combines humor with light drama to explore the manner in which a group of men cope with the emotional and financial toll of being "force adjusted." Moreso than its two immediate predecessors, however, The Full Monty is interested in getting the audience to leave the theater with a warm feeling, and, considering this undemanding agenda, it's reasonably successful...This isn't a great movie, but it's breezy, enjoyable, and easy to sit through. And sometimes, even when dealing with a serious issue like unemployment, that can be the perfect tone to drive home a message.
