Goofs

When Charlie and Justin attend Hector's party, they are seen taking the Central Line out into Essex, where Hector's mansion is supposedly located. They get off the train at Debden Station and are seen coming out of the main entrance and walking down the street. This scene was actually not filmed at Debden Station but at Ickenham Station, which is on the Metropolitan/Picadilly Line (as opposed to the Central) and in Middlesex (not Essex), which is on the other side of London, to the West rather than the East. Director Nick Love superimposed the word "Debden" over the "Ickenham" section of the sign, though quite why he chose to shoot the scene at Ickenham instead of Debden remains unclear. Ironically, it's unlikely that the boys would have used Debden to get to a house like Hector's anyway - if the house was supposedly in that part of Essex, it would have been more likely to have been somewhere like Chigwell.

Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner...
18 March 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In all honesty, people need to stop hating on this film and start seeing it for the simple bit of local London British genius it is.

This movie is on my top five favourite movies of all time list indefinitely! Not because it's epic or because it has an all-American cast - because it doesn't, it's just real. Admittedly if you're not from London or can't stand a cockney accent then this film is most definitely NOT for you. Other than that I think you'll love it and if you don't/ didn't then I'd love to know why... I defend it to the end! I seriously thought that Eastenders would be the be-all and end-all of Paul Nicholls but he so proved me wrong.. Whatever he does I will always remember him for this movie! He was absolutely brilliant (and cute too). Roland Manookian is not to be forgotten either as the annoying little side-kick that everyone loves to hate. And Jamie Foreman is the man as soon as we are introduced to his character "Tony" on screen... What a fantastic cast!!! Call it personal preference but there were so many laugh-out-loud moments for me in this film and times that I wanted to just cry... It's a roller-coaster of emotions. I recommend this to everyone!! And if you're disappointed then I apologise but I'm confident you won't be. Funny, sad, exciting all at once!!!
