A new film, "Calendar Girls," about the middle-aged Brit women who stripped off for charity, is getting raves and creating something of a sensation at the Cannes Film Festival...and has, evdiently, given a "new" phrase to the English language...

The Full Mandy! (ohhhhh, nooooo!)

Just for clarification...the full mandy is not my own pun (thank God!). The media in Cannes started floating it around in press about "Calendar Girls" and the broadcast media here has already picked up on it. Really.
