Date: Mon, 3 Nov 1997 14:46:50 +0000 From: Aaron Drews 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. Cheers, Aaron ===================================================================== ====== Aaron E.
