Hulu has announced that it will be producing a limited series adaptation of the film with the same name, titled The Full Monty. There are many intriguing elements around this project. The film, first shown in 1997 and received glowing reviews from critics, is about a group of unemployed men from Sheffield who decide to put on a striptease show to earn money for a buddy with financial difficulties. In addition to being hilarious throughout, one of the things that set The Full Monty apart from other movies was that it dealt with many serious topics about men, which are typically avoided or minimized in other movies. It was a critical and economic success in the UK and other countries, including well-known actors such as Robert Carlyle and Mark Addy.
The Full Monty struck a chord with many viewers and earned more than $250 million at the box office (according to The Numbers). The soon-to-be-released series seeks to recreate the same kind of enchantment that the original film did more than 25 years later. Even though it is a comedy, “The Full Monty” was awarded the BAFTA for “Best Film” and received a nomination for “Best Picture” at the Academy Awards the same year. The fact that The Full Monty was an independent film that gained popularity through word of mouth set it apart from other films. The developers of the new reboot series on FX and Hulu hope that some of the original enchantment will be transferred to their creation.

What is the Plot of The Full Monty?
The following is a description of the overall storyline for the Full Monty series:
It has been 25 years since the film “The Full Monty” featured six everyday men bearing all. Since then, there have been a lot of changes in the world, but what has become of the Monty gang?
Gaz is now a grandfather, but he is not aging dignifiedly. His teenage daughter is following in his footsteps and coming up with crazy plans, much like her father did when she was her age. Dave continues his life with unwavering devotion to his wife, Jean, and their dog Tallulah. However, Jean requires more from Dave than just daily updates on Tallulah’s bathroom habits, especially now that she is the headmistress of a school with several problems. Lomper and Dennis are married and attempt to keep their struggling café afloat despite their challenges.
Gerald, now retired, needs help making sense of the current world, but Horse has fallen far behind. When his attempt to fight back fails, the Monty gang pulls together to celebrate their lifelong friendships in the wake of the failure.
