For Screen and Country – The Full Monty (#25)

Written by on January 7, 2019

This week, Brendan and Jason encounter a much-needed change of pace from the first three intense dramatic films with The Full Monty! Is the film merely a “fun comedy” or is there much more beneath the surface that people (including the hosts) didn’t pick up on the first time around? They also discuss the film’s surprisingly progressive attitude towards sexuality, the use of the award-winning musical score, the way in which some very depressing themes sneak their way into the film under the guise of comedy and much, much more.

Plus: Brendan and Jason roll the dice to find out what movie they’ll be covering next week. What did you think of The Full Monty? Does it warrant inclusion on a best-of list?
