The final overheard shot of Troy walking the breakwater, as the waves pound him, shows that he has actually turned around and heading back the way he had come, as the same background (with ladder rungs heading down to the beach) is visible briefly that he was originally walking towards. 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 first feature-length movie by the guys from The Comic Strip,The Supergrass feels like it's just a longer episode. Adrian Edmonson's character tells a girl he's a drug smuggler(which is a lie) and gets busted by the police.They tell him if he becomes a narc(grass in British slang) they will drop the charges,so he tries to help them bust 2 smugglers played by Nigel Planer and Keith Allen. If you like The Comic Strip Presents,you will like this. I would recommend this to all fans of comedy but if you have trouble with English accents or slang, it may be hard to understand some stuff.Not to mention all the dated British pop culture references that even younger Brits would probably not get. If you think you have a good sense of humor,watch it.
