The Full Monty

"Good"

The Full Monty Review


Though it's hardly Best Picture-worthy, this lighthearted tale of five working class Brits who try to make ends meet through an impromptu strip show is certainly entertaining in a Farrelly brothers way. Ironically, there's barely even a partial Monty to be seen in the film, which may also strain the English dialect-translation skills of even the most sophisticated viewers.
