Largely sweet and insubstantial, not so much "funny" as it is charming and grin-making.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

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 única maneira que os protagonistas encontram de recuperar sua dignidade é tirando a roupa. Mas a vida não é repleta dessas peças?

A funny and fetching comedy about the resiliency of the human spirit.
July 9, 2001
The only reason it's matinee price instead of full price is that I felt that it all went too well and too American-style easily.

The Full Monty is feel-good comedy with none of the pejorative hints of innocuous blandness that term so often implies.

It's a familiar show-biz routine but one that's spangled with happy surprises and sharp acting.

A film that tries to mix full-out Brit humor with some deep messages about men trying to get their feelings of self-worth back. Unfortunately, it's oil and water.
