Working class heroes and what they’ll do to keep their families from disintegrating.

The Full Monty is a British comedy set amidst the economic destruction and high unemployment among the general laboring class.  This is a globalization theme, entire classes betrayed by the corrupt rulers of these modern regimes.  At the heart of the story is a man who owes child support to his ex, and she refuses to allow him to see his children until he pays up.

This deep cut brings the economic calamity into the personal realm.  With the brilliant idea of creating a male dancer Chippendales type show, in order to earn the needed child support cash, he sets out to wrangle his mates into joining him up on stage as male strippers.

This is a funny, topical and heartfelt dramedy that should be pretty timeless moving into the foreseeable future.

4.5/5
