9780006511922: The Full Monty

Inspired by a visit of The Chippendales to a local ladies' night, Gaz drags his best friend Dave and a most unlikely group of "strippers" through a series of hilarious adventures in pursuit of their strip-for-cash scheme.

The film The Full Monty was the sleeper hit of 1997. Made on a modest budget of about $3 million, it grossed more than $200 million worldwide and picked up an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture. This adaptation of Simon Beaufoy's screenplay, published to coincide with the film's release on video, fleshes out the situations and characters, exploring their motivations and ruminations in ways that the cinema cannot.

The story is the same: a group of unemployed steelworkers living in the depressed town of Sheffield resolve to pick up some side money by stripping in a public club. Lacking the physical attractions of your typical Chippendale dancers, the six heroes go for "the full monty" anyway, hoping to redeem themselves in the eyes of their community. Wendy Holden's novelization is every bit as funny and moving as the film and is highly recommended to its fans.
