Quotes

Blood: Mind you, don't misunderstand me. I'm all for the old fair sex. Nothing like them at the right time and the right place. I mean, let's face it, you boffins have never come up with anything better as a substitute. But the moment I catch a glimmer of the old red light, that's me, I'm off!

A Large Bar of Chocolate Please
12 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I think this film is brilliant. It depicts an era in British history that has long gone.Bubble-type cars, bars of chocolate at the railway station where you could just hop on a steam train and go up to town (London) or anywhere,without having to worry about pre booking or reserving seats, leave your car on the road just outside the station, and it would be there when you got back and no fee! There is a great scene where the use an emersion tank very similar to the stress relieving floatation tanks of today but this looks more fun. Another great scene is near the beginning when Blood reports to the Common Cold Research Station, which actually existed, and there are scenes of galeforce winds in the corridors and rain stopping play in a cricket match. The story line rattles along with pace and as usual in these films, there's a great supporting British cast.
