Dina Friedman, producer of The Media Path Podcast, joins Ryan and Nicole to discuss the 1997 Peter Cattaneo film, The Full Monty. It was nominated for 4 Oscars and it ended up winning Best Original Score in a Musical or Comedy for Anne Dudley's "controversial" score.

We discuss:

  • How the movie went from an indie film to a huge hit. (grossed 250 million on a 3.5 million budget)
  • Why Anne Dudley's score is considered controversial
  • How the soundtrack is full of great dance tracks
  • How the film packages a lot of heavy topics in a crowd pleasing film
  • The film's legacy and how it will soon be a TV show
