Goofs

The 3rd Generation Glock 17 handgun used by Milo (and later found by Eggs) is not "made almost entirely of plastic, making it undetectable by metal detectors" as claimed. It does have a polymer frame, but the slide (top portion), barrel and internals are all made of metal that would be easily detected by a metal detector. Also, while considerably quieter, a suppressed 9mm handgun is still much louder than depicted in most movies to include this one. See more »

One of the funniest films in the last few years
24 November 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I want to make a stand for The British Who Enjoyed This Film. We've watched this a few times with others and everybody has been in stitches, and are spreading the word.

The comic timing and perfect delivery of the dialogue is superb, its simplicity and cadence brilliant (but obviously lost on some who found it 'wooden'), enhanced by a set of very comic characters. It's refreshing to see actors from a wider pool employed instead of the same-old same-old hi-popularity niche.

The choreography fits the music like a glove - one of the best sex scenes ever. :-) Don't get put off by the nay-sayers - they'd probably not enjoy street theatre either.
