Trivia

They shot the scene with Horse in the telephone box three times: the first with an old woman outside overhearing the conversation, the second with a gang of girls on a night out overhearing, and when neither of them worked, they reshot it with no one listening. See more »

Goofs

In the funeral scene, Lomper is playing the hymn "Abide with Me" on cornet, and his fingers are clearly visible playing the notes. He plays every note correctly until the last line, where he swaps the two notes on "[ab]-ide with [me]" - he should be playing straight down the scale Bb,A,G,F and in fact plays Bb,G,A,F. See more »

holds up well
26 November 2005 | by mazalhamidbarSee all my reviews

I just caught this film again on television a couple of nights ago and found it just as endearing and charming as when I first saw it in the theaters upon its original release. The flawed characters are believable, the little boy is adorable and the situations hit close to home. Besides being a light comedy, the film in its subtle way makes an effective commentary on the wages of capitalism, or, to be more direct and precicee, what happens when capitalism takes wages away. Some viewers might find the accents and the slang a little bit tricky to follow, but they are part and parcel of the production and could not be altered. I think most people could figure it out OK.
