Troy sits on the sea wall facing the ocean, with his viola case next to him at ninety-degrees to the length of the breakwater. When he firsts open the case, however, it is obvious that he is now sitting facing down the length of the wall, and the case turned pointing down it also, as two edges of the breakwater are visible behind him.

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 »
I just finished watching this (last weekend) and found it absolutely hillarious, some of the scenes I just couldn't stop laughing at! Dennis is soooo amazingly thick sometimes, and just says the stoopidest things...but at the same time he's just being cool to impress his girlfriend (who gets arrested anyway!) The beach scenery is very tranquil...until along comes Robbie Coltrane...! Not the greatest movie ever made but certainly something to think about renting on a Saturday night when you haven't got much else to do (like I did). You might need to hunt around for it though - I was lucky, as my local video store stocks it.
