During most of the beach scenes, or any scene where the beach is visible in the background, the tide is inconsistently high or low. This is particularly evident in the opening sequence, when Dennis rows up to the beach and then looks for his mother, and the final morning when Troy is preparing to ambush the boat. See more »
The American version depletes all mention of the phone box outside the hotel being checked for hidden chalk messages, and also removes several other humorous scenes, such as the one where Troy complains to the landlady that there is no hot water. These cuts reduce the running time by about eight minutes. See more »
The Comic Strip featured actors from 'The Young One's' - a student based sitcom from the 80's. Comic Strip features included parodies of westerns, 'The famous 5', and The Professionals - all a lot funnier than this. Having said that Alexei Sayle puts in a good turn as a traffic cop with ambition and the soundtrack features great music from the era. 5/10
