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 »
Anti-wrinkle cream there may be, but anti-fat-bastard cream there is not.

This is an unbeatable movie! I saw it at the theater in 1997 along with about 7 other women...we all went to the theater alone because our hubbies refused to take us! Seriously...I did not know one single woman in the theater that day! We all loved the movie right off...
My sister bought it and we watched it with captioning, and boy had we missed a lot of lines at the theater and funny ones at that! You see with the English accents and all their slang-- you just can't understand a lot of what they are saying...
Watch this movie with and without the captioning! It's like watching a movie with English being your second language, and I B.S. you not!
The English working class has a different way of expressing themselves--its so charming and hilarious...
I think Robert Carlysle is brilliant "Gaz". I cannot think of anyone who could have done it better.
This movie cannot be beat! I bought it and recommend it to everyone!! Definitely a ten out of ten.
