Quotes

[Brett's Uncle Angus has just been squashed flat by a falling courtyard door, the latest in a string of murders of Brett's relatives]
Kate: Poor Uncle Angus. Meanest man I ever met. Probably worth millions.
Danny Wilde: Imagine. All that money and he died flat.
Lord Brett Sinclair: Well, uh, as someone once said, "To lose one relative is misfortune. To lose two is carelessness."
Kate: Oscar Wilde.
Lord Brett Sinclair: Thank you. But I have lost six. Which is absolute, downright negligence!

never mind the plots, this is how tv should be
22 August 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I dont think i have seen Tony Curtis so happy as he appears to be in this role. Whether its 'acting' happy or not, his and Moore's relationship lights up the screen, bringing cheerful escapist television into any living room.
