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.
August 24, 2018
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.

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.

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.
March 31, 2005
...a sweet, humane bit of entertainment that - unlike formulaic Hollywood movies - doesn't condescend to its audience.
June 25, 2004
The briskly paced, high-spirited movie is complemented by a funny score that includes the old disco hit You Sexy Thing.
