Trivia

The film director Melik is offered a large plate of biscuits (by Nan), and soon after, at 35min 23secs he is seen holding the camera with what looks like a Jammie Doger in his mouth. See more »

Goofs

When Ray is delivering the pirated video tapes to his friend, in the background shots there is a Citroen Xsara Picasso quite visible in the scene. This is a car that was launched in 2000 so wouldn't have been on the streets of London in 1995. See more »

Crazy Credits

After the credits the real Gary tells the camera that Ray would sell anything if he felt it would turn a profit, to which a smiling Ray replies that that's "not entirely true" and that it's "most unfair". See more »

Ant + Dec meet Bill + Harry
5 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

The British TV Yoof presenters Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly make their big screen debut (if you ignore their cameo in "Love Actually" where they interview the ageing rocker played by Bill Nighy). It's one of the strangest stories of modern times, the Londoners who discovered the Roswell alien autopsy film.

The cast also includes Bill Pullman as a Hollywood producer who wants to hear their story and Harry Dean Stanton as the original cameraman. Not forgetting the great Omid Djalili (the jailer in "The Mummy" and "Casonova"s servant) who gets to play a kebab shop owner.

I feared this would be a one joke movie (and maybe it is) but surprisingly it keeps its pace due to it's an amusing story with some good performances and some quirky characters including a Hungarian gangster and a granny obsessed with biscuits.

I doubt you will be rolling in the aisles but it's funny in its own way. Not to mention the choice hits of 1995 on the soundtrack. Unless you hate Ant + Dec (looking at the message board there certainly are) or the X-files, it is a Brit-com worth seeing.
