After working with Jim Broadbent in Only Fools and Horses.... (1981), David Jason said in his autobiography he was amazed that after such humble beginnings, Broadbent's career took him to such amazing places like this film and then Hollywood, and why he didn't take him with him. See more »

I honestly don't understand all the bad reviews this show has gotten. I think it's a great flick. Their sets and props were amusing (i.e., using birthday cake candles for torches and credit cards for doors), and it was interesting to see the world from a little person's point of view. The plot was very good, as was the acting, and the Borrowers' accents just added to their charm. You really should give this film a try.
