|Six unemployed men, inspired by a touring group of male strippers, decide they can make a small fortune by putting on a striptease show of their own-but with one small difference. They intend to go the "full monty" and strip completely naked! In this hilarious, heartfelt comedy, these six friends discover the inner strength to bare it all in front of the world. This "enchantingly funny crowd-pleasing" comedy (David Ansen, Newsweek) features the music of Donna Summer, Gary Glitter, Sister Sledge and Tom Jones.|
|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!
"Irresistible...hilarious! Janet Maslin, The New York Times
"An enchanting British comedy of gender politics...an unqualified delight... Lael Loewenstein, Box Office Magazine
"Hats off! Roaringly funny! Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Two thumbs up, way up! Siskel & Ebert
Editor's NoteIn hopes of raising a few quid after their steel factory shuts down, a desperate group of working-class blokes in Sheffield decide to form an exotic male dance troupe, a la Chippendales, with one difference--despite their, well, average-at-best physiques, they're going to go "the full monty," meaning they'll offer their audience total nudity. Surprisingly bittersweet moments and well-intentioned social commentary imbue this raucous, feel-good comedy from England. Academy Award Nominations: 4, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Original Musical or Comedy Score. Academy Award: Best Original Musical or Comedy Score.
