Memorable One Liners
5 July 2002 | by (Manchester, England) – See all my reviews

I well remember a couple of one liners from this film, in the scene were the roc goes through the window a Scotland Yard Milligan is asked what he can deduce from the clue. "Well Sir, whoever did this was only a stones throw away from here!" (Groan!!!!)Then when has asked "are you being funny Seargent" he stares at the camera and says "yes, aren't we all?"
