A series of self contained TV films starring performers from London's "Comic Strip" comedy club and their friends. Noted for a high sense of parody of previous films, literature, and generally everyone in sight.

The Cottage Hotel stood in for The Royal Hotel in Hope Cove, and hosted most of the production team. Only exterior scenes were shot here, however. Permission was given by the owner for filming to take place inside the hotel but when the crew advised they would need to "knock holes through walls" and make other interior changes, the owner refused and filming instead later took place at an unknown property in London for all inside shots of the hotel rooms, dining rooms, reception and corridor. As of early 2017 the hotel remains almost identical to how it was seen in the film, however the owners are presently planning an extensive renovation that will see it changed almost completely. The blue canopy over the main entrance was added by the production for the film, as was the neon "Royal Hotel" sign adjacent, which was attached to a white board covering the original (and still existing) Cottage Hotel sign. Since filming, several of the ocean-front rooms have been turned into "deluxe balcony" rooms, alongside the balcony rooms already visible in the movie. See more »
During most of the beach scenes, or any scene where the beach is visible in the background, the tide is inconsistently high or low. This is particularly evident in the opening sequence, when Dennis rows up to the beach and then looks for his mother, and the final morning when Troy is preparing to ambush the boat. See more »
I just finished watching this (last weekend) and found it absolutely hillarious, some of the scenes I just couldn't stop laughing at! Dennis is soooo amazingly thick sometimes, and just says the stoopidest things...but at the same time he's just being cool to impress his girlfriend (who gets arrested anyway!) The beach scenery is very tranquil...until along comes Robbie Coltrane...! Not the greatest movie ever made but certainly something to think about renting on a Saturday night when you haven't got much else to do (like I did). You might need to hunt around for it though - I was lucky, as my local video store stocks it.
