Six guys with nothing left to lose try losing their clothing for fun and profit in this international hit comedy. Gaz (Robert Carlyle) and Dave (Mark Addy) are two former steelworkers in the British industrial town of Sheffield who have been devastated by the economic downturn in their community. Gaz is threatened with losing visitation rights with his son if he cant pay his child support, while Dave feels emasculated by his inability to support his wife. One day, Gaz stops by a local pub for a drink and is told its women only tonight — the Chippendales male exotic dancing troupe is playing, and they are demanding a hefty cover charge. Gaz decides theres nothing a bunch of pantywaists from America can do that he and his pals cant do better, and decides to form his own crew of male strippers, called Hard Steel. However, the local talent pool leaves a bit to be desired. Gaz isnt bad looking, but Dave is a bit heavy and very self conscious about it. Horse (Paul Barber) was probably hot stuff at Soul Night in the mid-70s, but his joints dont move like they used to. Guy (Hugo Speer) cant dance to save his life, but makes the troupe because … well, lets say he and Dirk Diggler would have a lot to say to each other. Lomper (Steve Huison) is sometimes too busy attempting suicide to practice. And Gerald (Tom Wilkinson), their choreographer, isnt much on male exotic dancing — ballroom dancing is more his speed. While Hard Steels performances are more amusing then enticing, for the first time since they lost their jobs the men have a reason to get up in the morning; joining the group has given them a circle of friendship, and a renewed sense of purpose. Combining broad comedy with believable and well-drawn characters, The Full Monty was a major box-office hit both in England and the United States and was nominated for Academy Awards as Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
