The Full Monty review

Wacky plots, endlessly irritating characters and a distinct lack of stripping - this Disney+ series isn't a patch on the film.

The Full Monty review

As a general overview, I won't delve into spoilers, but I'd definitely say it might not be what you think it is, and this for more than for the better.

How we made The Full Monty

"I knew we wouldn't be able to show any genitals. I realised I should shoot from the back, with a row of bums"

Phil Hoad, The Guardian, 26th March 2019

A new series of comedy shorts - all set in the same location - opens with the entertaining Floyd, which stars Charles Dance as a retired rock band manager now living in suburbia with his uptight daughter (Amelia Bullmore) and son-in-law (Hugo Speer). Written by Mark Warren and Fraser Steele (Never Mind the Buzzcocks), it captures the rebelliousness of the ageing rocker and Dance is wonderfully grizzled in the role. Less successful is Jessica Hynes's Patricia, in which she stars as an issue-averse local councillor. After causing an accident on her way to work, Patricia is greeted by a demonstration against her plans to build luxury flats in place of a nursery school.
