"The Full Monty"
was Peter Cattaneo's
second Academy Award nomination. In 1990, his film,
Rosie" was nominated in the Best Live Action Short Film category.
A veteran of British television, Cattaneo's previous feature
film credit is a well-regarded 1995 movie,
Cattaneo is a young director who made a small,
quirky film and ended up with near universal recognition and approval
and a good seat at the academy Awards. "The Full Monty"
is a funny and highly original movie that makes its point graciously,
a rare quality these days. The movie has been successful, garnering
over $200 million in box office - that's 1/5 of "Titanic's"
take - but it's budget was only $3.5.
