What is The Full Monty film?
In 1997, a comedy-drama film with a difference exploded on to the cinema.
The Full Monty followed six unemployed men from Sheffield who transformed into Chippendale dancers so they could raise some cash.
It became an instant box office smash hit when word spread the men would go The Full Monty by baring all on stage.
Despite a budget of under £3million, it made over £200million in ticket sales and was later adapted into a musical in 2000 and a play in 2013.
The motley crew of unlikely strippers included actors Robert Carlyle, Mark Addy, William Snape, Steve Huison, Tom Wilkinson, Paul Barber and Hugo Speer.
Directed by Peter Cattaneo, the men strutted their stuff to Tom Jones’ You Can Leave Your Hat On, which to this day has become a globally recognised film track.
Although it was a light-hearted comedy, the film raised difficult issues including: unemployment, fathers’ rights, depression, homophobia and suicide.
