Did You Know?
This movie has said to have been inspired by the earlier British comedy, Man in a Cocked Hat
(1959) made and released about twenty-six years earlier. That film's American title was 'Man in a Cocked Hat', a cocked hat being something that Michael Caine
is seen wearing throughout this movie. Both films feature a bumbling diplomat, in the earlier film this was played by Terry-Thomas
whilst in this movie the diplomat is played by Leonard Rossiter
. Whereas the earlier film was set on a Pacific Island, the island in this movie is in the Carribean. The fictitious name of the mineral-rich island in the earlier film was Gallardia, in this movie the fictitious isle where the mineral water resource is discovered is called Cascara. Moreover, both movies function as political satires of their respective eras. See more

From there you can return to Cuba.
And face Fidel after this fiasco? No, we go to Miami. I have a cousin there.
Si. We go underground and spread sedition!
No, we deal coke. Like Al Pacino in Scarface.
