Storyline

Jack Dodd was a London butcher who enjoyed a pint with his mates for over fifty years. When he died, he died as he lived, with a smile on his face watching a horse race on which he had bet, with borrowed money. But before he died, he had a final request, "Last Orders", that his ashes be scattered in the sea at Margate. This movie follows his mates, Ray, Lenny, and Vic, and his son Vince as they journey to the sea with the ashes. Along the way, the threads of their lives, their loves and their disappointments are woven together in their memories of Jack and his wife Amy.

Goofs

The fluffy head of the boom mic is visible at the top of the screen during one of the flashbacks to young Jack Dodds flirting with his wife-to-be (although at this point he has only just met her; they seem to be cutting runner beans, or something). This is visible even when displayed in the correct aspect ratio of 2.39:1. See more »

Quotes

Jack: If y... if you ever get the chance... Raysy. I... if, if you ever get the option - you go first. It's the carrying on that's hard. Ending... it ain't nuffin'.

Oscar for Best Collective Performance
14 April 2002 | by cottrellpjSee all my reviews

This is acting of the very highest order by a British dream cast. The pace is leisurely, the tone sad, the journey well worth taking. Why no Oscar nominations? This is so un-Hollywood, it's a balm for adults who want to appreciate the cream of British talent.
