Couch Potato Pickings | The Full Monty


A British setting, a great use of Yorkshire slang, a cast of great Brit actors including Robert Carlyle and Tom Wilkinson, a serious message delivered with lots of wit, a soundtrack that includes Donna Summer’s Hot Stuff, Hot Chocolate’s You Sexy Thing and You can Leave Your Hat On by Tom Jones, a BAFTA win, an Oscar win, and three additional Oscar nominations, male strippers (if you like that sort of thing), that famous dole queue scene, an inspirational message for the current economic climate and a reputation as one of the most successful British films of all time…

As you can see, it’s not just called The Full Monty.

That famous Hot Stuff scene didn’t quite make it into my Top Five funny musical moments in film at the weekend, but it’s still pretty amusing, so here it is.
