Corrected entry: In the first scene, Gaz, Dave and Nathan are robbing steel girders from the factory, and the brass band walks past. The music only starts up AFTER Dave has said "Listen." The music should have started before this in order for there to be anything for him to want the others to listen to.

Correction: It's the dead of night, he is paranoid and on his guard, and he hears a fairly noisy crowd of people bustling about. He reacts accordingly. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Corrected entry: When the lads are dancing in the dole queue, Lomper is with them. What's he doing there? He already has a job (as a security guard), and I think somebody would've noticed him illegally claiming benefits.

Correction: There are many kinds of benefits that can be claimed even by those with jobs. Even if he was claiming benefits illegally, there's no reason to assume that he "would've been noticed", it happens all the time.


Correction: He might not be claiming. I used to accompany a tenant of my house when he went to pick up his benefit giro to make sure he handed over his rent.

Corrected entry: There's a little bit of foreshadowing about Guy and Lomper's gay relationship : in the shot where Guy is showing everyone his 'equipment', everyone else just stares and shifts in their seats, Lomper is the only one who actually leans forward to get a better look; and in the second scene in Gerald's house, when Dave is looking at a girl in a magazine, just after Lomper declares "Her tits are too big" (implying, obviously, that he likes them small), Guy assumes a come-get-me position on the sunbed, smiling in Lomper's direction.

Correction: This is not trivia, it is part of the plot. The relationship is furthered when they are running away from the police and wind up climbing through the open window together.

Corrected entry: In two different scenes, the same extras (a woman with long blonde hair and a man) are shopping in the store where Dave works, first in a brief shot on Dave while the others have their dress rehearsal, and then before Dave and Gaz steal the jackets. (01:00:45 - 01:08:45)

Correction: It's a supermarket, it's not a mistake for people to go shopping in the same supermarket more than once.


Corrected entry: When the dress rehearsal is ended by the police, Lomper and Guy escape. However, the next day some girls recognise Guy while he is jogging, mentioning that he was in the paper with the others. (01:11:50)


Correction: They put in pictures from the video, which Guy was in.


Corrected entry: When Lomper tries to kill himself with his car, you see Dave running back, opening the door and throwing Lomper on the ground; then closing the car door. Then Lomper insults Dave who throws him back into the car - this time the car door is open again.

Correction: Dave doesn't close the door after he pulls out Lomper. He drops him on the ground, turns around and leans against the car. In all shots the door is visibly open.


Corrected entry: When they are watching flashdance for some tips, Dave comments on the girl welding, saying she has got her mixture all wrong. He is getting electric welding and gas welding confused. She is arc welding which is electric. (00:37:55)

Correction: Welding they talk about is gas/air mix, electric arc (which they are doing) is just a rod and electric, totally different.

Correction: Dave may only be aware or knowledgable about gas welding where the sparks are an indication that the mix is incorrect (that the mixture is reacting before it is reaching the 'target').

Continuity mistake: The lads have been caught by the police during the dress rehearsal. Their names are being taken and the clock on the wall in the police station says 11.40 a.m. - it's in daylight. The security videos are brought in and the time on the one they watch is 12:27. (01:02:15 - 01:03:40)

Gerald Arthur Cooper: Fat, David, is a feminist issue.
Dave: Well, what's that supposed to mean, when it's at home?
Gerald Arthur Cooper: I don't bloody know, do I? But it is.

More quotes from The Full Monty

Question: Why does the alarm go off when Dave puts the Pick-n-Mix in his mouth and then stop when he steps on it?

Answer: It's a sight gag. Dave's essentially stealing the candy, so the alarm goes off. When he crushes it, the alarm stops. It wouldn't really happen, but it's funny that the alarm stops when he removes the candy.
