GUEST,TJ in San Diego Song Challenge... involving 'Willy' (17) RE: Song Challenge... involving 'Willy' 08 Jan 10

I have been dying to ask our friends in the U.K. about a certain U.S. made film that received many awards a few years ago. Specifically, how it was titled and marketed there. It was the film about the orca (killer whale) which was repatriated and released into the wild - "Free Willy." Was the name changed to protect the innnocent? For the linguistically creative among us, there might be another verse or two relating to this.

Several years back, I recall being chastised by a young man of the British persuasion who caught me in a very American slang term when I invited a young lady to "get off her fanny and get to work." Surely there are other potentials for faux pas such as that built in to our respective vernacular.
