Near the beginning, the chap with the glass eye proudly announces "Look at me, I made it. And I've got a glass eye". Both eyes then swivel to look at Pete, then away, showing us that it is a contact lens. See more »

Funniest film I have seen in a long time.
29 April 2002 | by albrodieSee all my reviews

This is the funniest film I have seen in a long time. I actually laughed out loud. The characters are so true to life they make one see how utterly bizarre life is. Particularly the character of Tommy. Anyone who has ever worked in a sales position will find his performance perfectly hilarious. It's probably not a comedy for everyone though. There's a fair amount of raw English slang and one remarkably graphic sex scene that almost seems out of place until you hear Pete's comment in the scene that follows. Overall I recommend this, but by all means expect the unexpected!
