Did You Know?

When Maggie meets Samuel L. Jackson, she says he played Morpheus in The Matrix (1999), and he corrects her saying it was Laurence Fishburne. The scene is based on the fact that Jackson is often mistaken for Fishburne (and vice versa) in real life.See more »
Minister:For god sake, you bloody yanks are all the same
[snaps document binder]
Minister:. You all run like a John Wayne and leave us to clean up your mess. I've got three embassies baying for blood. I got two dead diplomats on a partridge on a bloody pear tree. Whitehall running around like a bunch of headless chickens. What exactly am I supposed to tell Prime Minister?
Samuel L. Jackson:[pausing to exhale cigar smoke] Tell him that Uncle Sam's in town.

Samuel L Jackson, 30 March 2017
Author: Prismark10 from United Kingdom

Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant certainly can do excruciating comedy and here they turn up the dial to 11.

Maggie fancies a black actor in the latest film that she and Andy are Extras in but every time she utters a word to him she ends up making an unintentional racial mishap. The funniest scene is where Andy does a test on her whether she is a racist or not and has to answer some questions. These include questions such as who is the Prime Minister of Britain and then who is the Prime Minister of Botswana plus similar types of questions.

Andy has problems of his own. Although he has bagged a speaking role in the movie opposite Samuel L Jackson but he seems to be pursued by Dullard (Steven Speirs) a middle aged lonely Welshman who just wants to have dinner with him. Andy just cannot shake him off and ends up going to a cosy restaurant with him.
