In the kitchen, when Sylvia removes the cake from the pan, it breaks into multiple pieces. She arranges it haphazardly on the plate and begins to ice it while still standing at the kitchen counter. When she brings the plate and icing into the living room the cake has been arranged better and there is no icing on it. See more »

Great follow up to Great original...
13 November 2003 | by (Poole, England) – See all my reviews

I don't honestly understand why this film was panned so severely! It may not be a masterpiece as such but it certainly was worth the time of day.

And for the people that are getting so serious about the England v. America thing: I'm English too and happen to find the stereotypes displayed in this film hilarious. It isn't meant as a direct offence, but merely light hearted fun.

Also the "3 men" are fantastic again in their roles. Nancy Travis does a great job and has more chance in this film to show what she's got! Christopher Cazenove does a great job of being completely unlikeable and Fiona Shaw is AMAZING!

A great film and to anyone who hasen't watched it already - please do! You won't regret it.
