The Full Monty

½

(Free on Comcast) Bringing cheeky new meaning to the concept of downsizing, unemployed British steelworkers organize into a striptease act to regain their self-esteem. The troupe’s Busby Berkeley is their once-snooty foreman, with middle-class pretensions he finds himself only too glad to jettison — along with his trousers. (R; runs through April 22)

Manhunter

(Free on Comcast) Slick “Miami Vice” goes to the movies stuff, but the psychopathic killers are genuinely creepy. (R; runs through April 30)

Aviator

(Encore on Comcast) For Rosanna Arquette and Christopher Reeve fans. He’s a ’20s pilot, she’s air freight, and the dialogue crashes before the plane does. The juxtaposition of fragile planes and rugged mountains captures more of the heroism and romance of flying than the direction and writing do. (PG; runs through April 30)
