Peter Cattaneo

The Full Monty

Edition 1997
95' - 1996 - Drama, Comedy - Dialogue: English
Director: Peter Cattaneo Composer: Anne Dudley With: Robert Carlyle, Tom Wilkinson, Mark Addy, Paul Barber, William Snape
In need of some quick cash, the fun loving and slightly irresponsible Gaz, hatches a plan to launch a striptease act in order to earn himself and his out-of-luck pals some much-needed money. Unlike the Chippendales dancers, whose visit to a local Ladies Night inspires these friends - they are the furthest thing from the exotic dancer “ideal”. Gaz's best friend David is overweight and a little down-in-the-dumps over a recent bout of impotency; ex-foreman and amateur ballroom dancer Gerald (pink-slipped but afraid to tell his wife) is hopelessly uptight; Horse, an old geezer whose dance repertoire includes the bump, the bus stop, the stomp and the funky chicken; and Guy, despite his love of "Singin' in the Rain" has no sense of rhythm…
