The Full Monty (1997)
This is the movie which made me forever love Robert Carlyle - he's completely adorable. The entire cast is great and I think that they were actually cast very well. The six men playing hapless strippers do represent the "every man" - one's skinny, one's overweight, two are older. The strip show at the end, though not as revealing to the audience as it is to the characters in the club, is hysterical. This is a fantastic, fun movie and was nominated for Best Picture, but it had the misfortune of being made in a year when nothing stood a chance against Titanic. And come on - who doesn't get the urge now to dance every time they hear the song "Hot Stuff?"
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
