Location.....
2 January 2009 | by (Hong Kong - ex Gerrards Cross) – See all my reviews

This movie was actually shot on Location in Gerrards Cross and on Gerrards Cross common. I know this as the womble-car scenes were filmed in my garage... which was quite exciting as a 6 year old.

The production crew had a party in our back garden one night and left beer cans and rubbish everywhere. However they didn't bank on my psychotic ex-stepfather who gathered all the rubbish in one big sack, walked through a scene they were shooting and dumped all the garbage over the roof of the directors Bentley.

Kind of a forgotten movie, but has funny memories for me and great for kids!
