Bryan Batt was in the Broadway musical "Cats", which is an in-joke during the movie (his character is also in the musical as well.) See more »

Goofs

In the cloakroom scene at the memorial, the door to the room is left ajar when the characters enter the room, but in some of the cuts you can see that it is closed. Many of the cuts showing the door both ajar and closed are immediately back to back making the change very obvious. See more »

I just adore this film
18 November 2000 | by See all my reviews

I first saw this film on TV, and was gobsmacked (a British expression!) at Patrick Stewart's performance- this is totally unlike anything else I have seen him in.

However, I soon discovered that there many more superb performances in Jeffrey... from the smallest roles (usually played by bigger names than you'd expect!) to the main roles entrusted to Stephen Weber & Michael Weiss. I managed to have a marvelous time just star spotting!

I found this so hilariously funny in some scenes, and yet full of pathos in others that I ended up laughing & crying at the same time. In the end I just had to buy it, so I can watch it as often as I want. Be broadminded, and give this film a go... it won't disappoint.
