People in our society today will do whatever it takes for money, even if it means going the "full monty." Whether or not it is morally right, money will lead you in all kinds of directions.
In the movie The Full Monty, two men and a boy seek to recruit dancers for a one day night club in which they will strip for women because they are in desperate need for some money. Every character in the movie went through some sort of a transition phase. The character that changed the most in the movie was Gerald. He went from being disliked by Gaz and laughing at his stripping plan to then joining Gaz and the group to strip.
Gerald's character at first is one which was very much disliked by Gaz and vice versa in the beginning of The Full Monty. One reason why Gaz and Gerald didn't get along at first was when the two were at the same job club. While sitting in the job club, Gerald overhears Gaz talking about stripping to his good friend Dave. Gerald laughs and says, "Oh aye, could just see little and large *&% prancing around Sheffield with their widgers hanging out. Now that would be worth ten quid."
Gerald finds it very entertaining and funny that they are actually willing to strip for money while he is working hard for a real paying job. This really offends Gaz because he really wants to continue with his idea but Gerald is putting him down with absurd remarks. The tension heats up even more between the two when Gaz interferes with one of Gerald's interviews for a job.
The two at this point despise each other. Gaz is certainly not the happiest of people because he is still searching for a job to earn back custody of his son. Meanwhile, he found a way to interfere with Gerald's life. Gerald is unhappy because he's searching for a real job and finally has an opportunity for one but totally blows it because of Gaz. The animosity between Gerald and Gaz in The Full Monty is brought upon when the two bump heads while trying to search for a job. Gerald's character at first is one which is annoyed wants to be left alone so he can find his own job.
Gerald changed in the end by later becoming friends with Gaz and joining the group to strip for one night. At first, Gerald was spotted by Gaz and Dave dancing with his wife. The two were amazed at the skills of the old man so they asked for his help on dancing. Gerald joins the group and helps them create a dance for the one night strip club. Gerald was in need of a job because the one he was pursuing was already out of reach.
Even though he still thought the idea of stripping was crazy, Gaz lured him into doing it. Gaz knew Gerald would help them when he asked for help and Gerald responded with, "What if someone spots me?" Gerald was afraid of being spotted by anyone but Gaz assured him that there would be no trouble what so ever. Gerald changed throughout the movie because of financial needs, much like every other character in the movie. After first being not so friendly with each other, Gerald now went on to make money with Gaz
People will change their whole character for money. However, it can also bring people together to work as a team. At first glance, Gerald seemed very hated by Gaz and was against getting naked to earn money. He went from being disliked by Gaz to then being part of the group he didnï¿½??t want to be a part of at first. Through time, he realized the only way he can make money quickly was to change.
