Being English might have had something to do with it, but I loved this film. All the acting was outstanding and the multitude of little comic moments had me laughing much more than other 'comedies' that we get from hollywood.

As for the unintelligible accents, well I suggest that the American market which struggles to understand anything not US formulaic mass media, grows up.
