As of January 2017, this is the 23rd most successful movie ever shown at the UK Box Office, taking in £52m. It is believed that its success came in the wake of the death of Princess Diana, and that UK cinema-goers were looking for light relief after such a tragic event. See more »

Ey up, someone's coming.
Aye, not so bad.
[after the Passer-by leaves]
Not so bad? Not so bad? That's not much of a chuffing SOS is it?

No matter how many times I've seen it, and there's been lots, I laugh so hard it hurts. The characters are so endearing, especially little Nathan, that you just love them all. The music is great, and there are moments that tugged at your heart as well as make you laugh out loud. And the final stripping scene is fabulous! Glad to see Gaz finally got in time with the music. ;)
