The Full Monty

Plot hole: When Gaz tries to steal a jacket and Dave, who works as security, catches him in quite a dramatic manner they are seen by other employees. Dave lets Gaz go because he is a friend. But the next day both stroll together through the shop as if nothing had happened, with no enquiries or follow-up from the other employees. (00:59:30)

Plot hole: When Gaz, Dave, and Nathe are trying to cross the canal with two stolen girders via the semi-sunk car one girder is balancing on the car roof and the other one lies between the hood and the other side. Nathe walks across the girder, Gaz asks him to pull it onto the land, and Nathe lets it drop into the water. This doesn't make sense for two reasons: 1. It's obvious that the girder is too heavy for Nathe, 2. They would have first used this girder to carry the other one across, which must also have been the way how they reached the car in the first place. The movie depicts Gaz not exactly as perfect but still too smart for such blunders. (00:03:40)

Continuity mistake: At the end of the dress rehearsal, when the policeman looks around the corner, someone's shirt appears on the armrest of Nathe's chair. (01:01:40)

Trivia: As the finale was filming, the actors performed the entire strip routine in front of the crowd - the only time that they went 'the full monty'. To counter understandable nerves, all the actors had enough to drink beforehand to make them at least slightly drunk. Some got a bit carried away and were very inebriated, for example, when Gaz kisses Nathe, it was not scripted (look at Nathe's face), but was carried out because Carlyle was drunk.
