Trivia

The camping scene was one of the first scenes to be filmed and was a way for the cast to get to know each other and 'bond'. The actors had to put up the tents as in the script and cope with bratty children. The children needed very little direction. Finally at the end of the scene, after swimming in an apparently idyllic 'wadi' (in reality a shallow filthy pool) the characters get drunk. The actors entered into the character of the scene with great gusto and the final 'seduction' scene required several re-shoots due to drunkenness. It is the only outtake of many possible outtakes included on the DVD. See more »

Quotes

Khalid: Hello.
James Barrett: Listen you. I've just been attacked by a frigging scorpion!
Khalid: Yes, I warned you there may be insects.
James Barrett: Insects? Cockroaches are insects. Bloody murderous scorpions are not what I would class as insects. I could have been killed.
Khalid: Nonsense, even if you had been stung you probably wouldn't have died.
James Barrett: No?
Khalid: No, you'd be fine
James Barrett: Fine?
Khalid: Well, perhaps not fine. You'd have to go to hospital and you'd probably be in terrible pain for a few days but not dead. You'll probably want to die...
James Barrett: Thanks very much...
