Trivia

The character played by Bill Nighy holds guns with just a thumb and middle finger, with his index on the trigger. This unusual grip is because he suffers from Dupuytren's contracture, which means he can't straighten the ring and little fingers on each hand. See more »

Goofs

(at around 20 mins) When Rose first goes into the restoration department of the museum she startles Gerry and he flinches, leaving a dab of paint on the left-hand side of the man's forehead just below the hairline of the painting he is working on. In the next camera angle he seen removing the dab with a cotton tipped stick from the right-hand side and there is no paint mark on the left side. See more »

An unforgettable Foot Massage !
27 August 2010 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

What can I add to a great British comedy more than other's reviews? Well, it was fresh, fun, a touch of sexiness and simply fun. (I said it twice?)

We were 11 and if we were in US, I think we could file for a 3rd grade murder by suffocation! It was an instance in the movie when Bill Nighy said, "May I do your other foot!".

I can tell you guys that, 7 of my friends choked instantly on the buttered pop-corns and I, as the only person in the row, tears in the eyes, still breathing, had to take care of them all.

Coughing, tears in the eyes hitting their backs! Lucky we were not thrown out of the theater!

It is a fresh, British humor, Classy and Cool movie. Give it a try.
