The tiny amount of helium that they use wouldn't lighten the jockey by any more than a few ounces at most - it's about the same amount used to fill three helium balloons, which can be held down with a very small bag of sand. See more »

You know, I can see it now - she's a stunningly attractive woman.
It means she's relaxed in our company.
If she relaxes any more it could get very messy.
Don't. She might hear you.
Jez, look at her. She's wasted. God only knows what she was up to last night.

So I just caught this movie, years after it first came out.... and loved it! The lead characters are perfectly cast, complimenting each others performances wonderfully throughout. Ok, so I knew from scene one that it was all going to turn out for the best in the end, but it was the sort of movie where I didn't care! Great comedy situations, and strong writing ensured a thoroughly enjoyable experience. N.B - No review of this film would be complete without a mention of the fantastic soundtrack. From 60's American, past 90's Britpop, and culminating in the utterly magical workings of Neil Hannon - it was a joy to listen to.
