(at around 4 mins) When Gary Shoefield first steps outside his flat in Hackney this is #17 Beck Rd, Hackney, London. It still has the same color door, visible in Google Streetview. See more »
Early in the film, Santilli runs down the stairs in Nan's house, and when he reaches the bottom he grabs the stair rail. The whole thing moves, revealing this house to be just a set. See more »
Now is what you have told me the truth?
[Holding a gun to Ray's head]
Yes! I swear to you.
Everything I've told you is absolutely true!

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 »
This film isn't bad, it's a good 6 out of 10. Ant and Dec's acting skills are, to be frank, not really up to much but the plot line is so outrageous that you end up ignoring the acting just to keep up with which country they are in and who they are talking to. It takes a while to relax into the 'flow' of the film, but when you do it becomes quite enjoyable. Characters like Voros (played by Götz Otto) will intrigue, interest and even slightly scare you. The actually autopsy scene is cleverly put together and 'snortingly-funny' as one of my friends put it. I think the fact that the film is based on a true story is the only reason the plot is accepted in your mind as you watch it.
And when the cast list rolls across the screen, you will (as the whole of our cinema did) sigh, stretch then snigger quietly to yourself as you remember the more... interesting... parts of the film.
It has to be said however that I won't be buying it on DVD, BUT it takes up two hours and allows you to relax.
