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. 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.
