    The Big Monty is a film still relevant today, as it touches on the hardships of the blue collar worker suffering during a recession. Our heroes are out of work steel workers who decide to earn a quick buck by giving a Chippendale show in which they do the professionals one better and go "the full Monty", i.e. completely naked. Of course, these are unlikely sex gods, and while that's played for laughs, it also provides a lot of pathos. Over the course of their adventure, they will benefit from a sensitive camaraderie that belies their "hard man" professions, and find ways to reconnect with their wives, children and community. Whether funny or sad, it doesn't achieve those states quite the way you think it will, though certainly, the gauche dance numbers will amuse and the central father-son relationship will tug at the heart strings. The Full Monty is a pleasant anthem for the common man that manages to grasp something beyond its more obvious premise. 2 years 7 months ago
