The Full Monty finds both pathos and laughs in its farfetched conceit, avoiding the pitfalls of sappiness and shtik. Odds are good you'll exit grinning.
It's a familiar show-biz routine but one that's spangled with happy surprises and sharp acting.
The Full Monty carries beneath its feelgood trajectory an exquisite air of gallows humour mixed with a dash of melancholy and a wee sprinkling of empathetic leftist politics.
Its social commentary, its unlikely but charismatic cast, and heartfelt but humorous writing has made it a film that many people find hard to forget.
Largely sweet and insubstantial, not so much "funny" as it is charming and grin-making.
Who knew male strippers could be so sweet?
Leaves the audience smiling and giggling, all the while painting a convincing and touching portrait of the downtrodden in England.
The premise of this British comedy, out-of-work male strippers, is contrived and calculated, but the film exudes charm and optimism.
When it was first released in 1997, it made quite a name for itself, arguably in large part to the fact of its subject matter. A decade later, the shock factor is gone and what's left is a genuinely funny little film.
A crowd-pleasing blue-collar comedy, half funny and half sad.
...a sweet, humane bit of entertainment that - unlike formulaic Hollywood movies - doesn't condescend to its audience.
The briskly paced, high-spirited movie is complemented by a funny score that includes the old disco hit You Sexy Thing.
A great working class film, that has depth but also a comedic feel that will leave a giant smile on your face, you will also be moved to dance witht the great soundtrack!
This is a funny film - in part because these guys make the best of a horrible situation - most of Sheffield being thrown out of work when the steelworkers are all laid off.
The Full Monty is a good little comedy with a great cast. I very enjoyed the film, and thought it was a fine film for what it was. If you're looking for a charming comedy, The Full Monty may not be the masterwork everyone has claimed it to be. However, it is a well acted film with a feel good tone. The cast are very good and there's not one character that you dislike. This is a well directed film, one that really stands out. The film is very good, but I found that the comedic delivery was at times short. I felt that the gags fell flat at times, but in the end the film told a good story. The film has some pretty decent gags going through it, but there's never anything hilarious going on. I felt that the film was good because of the cast, and story, and it has some laughs throughout the film. As far as this film being the greatest British comedy, it's far from it. The film is worth seeing and it manages to be a memorable and must see film. The cast make this film work well enough. The script is well written, and The Full Monty is a smart, but flawed comedy that manages to entertain due to its diverse characters and good cast. This may not be the best comedy that every critic has claimed it to be, but it's still worth watching. Robert Carlyle and company are fun to watch on-screen. This is a well crafted film, and though it has its flaws, it's a must see. Brilliantly acted and directed, The Full Monty is a good spirited flick that is simply charming.
