Don't the title of the list explain it well enough? This is a list of 200+ quality "short" films. Easy…
The Full Monty
The year's most revealing comedy.
Sheffield, England. Gaz, a jobless steelworker in need of quick cash persuades his mates to bare it all in a one-night-only strip show.
Hilarious subject matter with the most likeable motley crew ever to grace the big screen!
Easily among my top 10 Comedies that I watch atleast once a year! Killer soundtrack and a fabulous cast that elevates comedy to a whole new level! One of the BEST Buddy films ever!
There is something about the British, who are often said to be "cold", that they are able to make a terrific comedy out of every situtation.
A woman learnin to drive? You have Happy Go-Lucky.
A zombie Rom-Com? Shaun of the Dead is for you.
Now we get 6 unemployed, Sheffield born brits who decide to make money by stripping. Not only stripping, but going the "Full Monty" (taking off all your cloths).
The Full Monty does not try to be overly sentimental. It does not try to preach, and does not try to inject sadness to pump up the story.
All the tension, the jokes and story come from the blokes trying to learn how to dance/strip, and their…
It's like watching the Monty Python troupe only instead of a bunch of British folks doing physical comedy, it's a bunch of British folks getting physical, stripping and what not. Ok, it's nothing like Monty Python, but it's still pretty fucking funny.
If you ever wanted to see Tom Wilkinson strip down to his bare ass, this is clearly the film for you.
Peter Catteano’s hilarious black comedy is inherently British, but the themes at the centre of its delightfully evocative narrative will affect people universally. The film offers a perfect blend of unrestrained humour and touching drama to give an immensely rewarding experience. This 1997 masterpiece will be recognised for many years to come as one of the greatest British films of all-time.
Nothing says "friendship" like two friends seeing a film about some male strippers together.
Probably should have been the tagline...

See it with a bud.
I knew barely anything going into The Full Monty, i knew it starred Robert Carlyle and that it had been nominated for Best Picture and Director and this was the only movie nominated for Best Picture of the last two decade that i had not seen yet. But about the movie itself i knew nothing i was just hoping the movie would leave up to the expectations that one gets of a who was nominated for Best Picture.
The Full Monty is Directed by Peter Cattaneo and it stars Robert Carlyle, Mark Addy, William Snape, Steve Huison, Tom Wilkinson and Paul Barber.
"Sheffield, England. Once a bright community "on the move", the city has fallen into ruin after the steel…
Right after The Full Monty ended, I asked myself whether there was something I didn't like about this movie and not only was the answer negative, but I also realized that I loved absolutely everything about it. A little masterpiece of the genre, this is one of the absolute greatest comedies from the '90s.
With fantastic and endearing characters, an awesome soundtrack, hilarious lines, and with plenty of moments filled with irony, this was a wonderfully directed film with insanely smart writing. The cast was practically perfect and the comic timing by each of the actors was priceless. The premise may seem unoriginal at first and it probably looks like something seen many times before, but here everything feels fresh and believable, and the film not only was incredibly funny but really heartfelt and human as well.
wow haven't seen this one in ages. I don't know what kids nowadays watch at school but I remember seeing thins one when i was in high school.
This movie was loads of fun and much better than I was expecting. Everything about the film was very British from the characters, to the setting, to the style of comedy. At times some of the accents and slag terms almost made it feel like it was in a foreign language. Each of the characters in the unlikely rag tag team were very likeable and their individual story arcs were simple but interesting. The overall story was pretty basic but the premise alone was enough to generate some great laughs. The writing was witty, the jokes were funny and the whole thing was a very entertaining watch.
No la había visto desde el estreno, y no es tan profunda como la recordaba (tenía 14 años, no me lo tengáis en cuenta). Aún así, toca algunos temas serios y al mismo tiempo es simpatiquilla.
Unemployed and broke, Gaz needs to find a way to pay child support so his ex-wife will let him see his son. Gaz cooks up a scheme with some other out-of-work and down-on-their-luck guys to raise money by stripping. Untalented and very average-looking, these guys make for an unlikely Chippendale troop. This movie has funny writing and the movie knows what it is and it shows it off.
Rewatching this is always a joy. The boys in Magic Mike should take a hint or two from these laddies!
Top British comedy that brings a whole new light and look at a dark period for the British northern man. Top cast, direction, and soundtrack.
Hilarious and heartwarming. Watch nude for best results.
