When the Police arrive after the 'house smashing' scene one of the vehicles is a Bedford CF with a 1976 registration plate. Whilst the vehicle was available in 1976, the model shown is a post 1980 face lifted version with a plastic radiator grille. See more »
I also had the opportunity of seeing this film at the London Film Festival, but not having grown up in the 70s approached it with few expectations and even less knowledge of what the period was like. The actors all turned in good performances, with Tom Courtenay especially memorable. The direction was slick and the film consequently flowed smoothly. Some jokes were hilarious and reflected the overall strength of the screenplay, which was packed with novel ideas and witticisms. All in all a very friendly and fun film that I would highly recommend.
