In this musical adapted from the British film of the same name, six steelworkers are downhearted as they are low on cash and prospects. They catch their wives and other women going crazy over some professional male Chippendale strippers.
The six men decide that they can easily make some quick cash showing off their 'real man' bodies by becoming a team of male strippers. One of them, Jerry, declares that their show will be better than the Chippendales because they'll go 'The Full Monty' - strip all the way.
As they practice for the show, the men work through their fears, self-consciousness and anxieties to overcome their inner demons and finally find strength in their camaraderie.
