Subject: The Full Monty
Apparently, the writer of the film (or one of the head honchos),
was at a roadside cafe one morning in England. He ordered a "cooked
breakfast", with everything that comes along with an English cooked
breakfast. The waitress asked him, "oh, the Full Monty?"
This could be one of those folk origins, of course. I'll ask
around and see if there is an actual, recorded interview with the writer
about the title.
