Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Largely sweet and insubstantial, not so much "funny" as it is charming and grin-making."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"The premise of this British comedy, out-of-work male strippers, is contrived and calculated, but the film exudes charm and optimism."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"...a sweet, humane bit of entertainment that - unlike formulaic Hollywood movies - doesn't condescend to its audience."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"A funny and fetching comedy about the resiliency of the human spirit."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"It all comes off this summer."
‑ David N. Butterworth,
"Who knew male strippers could be so sweet?"
‑ Joyce Slaton, Common Sense Media
"When it was first released in 1997, it made quite a name for itself, arguably in large part to the fact of its subject matter. A decade later, the shock factor is gone and what's left is a genuinely funny little film."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Calgary Movies
"The briskly paced, high-spirited movie is complemented by a funny score that includes the old disco hit You Sexy Thing."
‑ Judith Egerton, Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)
"The only reason it's matinee price instead of full price is that I felt that it all went too well and too American-style easily."
‑ Karina Montgomery, Cinerina
"A film that tries to mix full-out Brit humor with some deep messages about men trying to get their feelings of self-worth back. Unfortunately, it's oil and water."
‑ Widgett Walls,
"Leaves the audience smiling and giggling, all the while painting a convincing and touching portrait of the downtrodden in England."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"A crowd-pleasing blue-collar comedy, half funny and half sad."
‑ Thomas Delapa, Boulder Weekly
"A única maneira que os protagonistas encontram de recuperar sua dignidade é tirando a roupa. Mas a vida não é repleta dessas peças?"
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"The Full Monty is feel-good comedy with none of the pejorative hints of innocuous blandness that term so often implies."
‑ Russell Smith, Austin Chronicle
"Even the full monty as promised, was not delivered."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
