Goofs

Miss Wilderspin says to Peter, "I see you attended Christ College. Oxford, or Cambridge?" There is no 'Christ College' at Oxford or Cambridge, though there is a Christ's College at Cambridge and Christ Church at Oxford. From other remarks made by Miss Wilderspin we are led to understand she is familiar with Oxford and Cambridge and very possibly went to one of the universities herself. So it is unlikely to be a mistake made by the character. See more »

Stunning film
26 September 2006 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

Finally a film that actually manages to glamorise the world of BDSM. A scene that is generally depicted as seedy, and downright nasty, is given a comedic image, and made to appear as varied and interesting as it actually is.

For me, this film is right up there with Trainspotting as one of the great alternative British comedies, with a selection of British celebrities, and recognisable faces lending credence to the film.

For those who are in the scene, I know this to be a popular film, but also for many others as well. It strikes a chord with yet another subculture whose image is tainted by the view of the general public, and gives it a new buzz of life an energy. This was made nearly a decade ago, but has not aged overly since then.

Definitely one of my top 10 films.
