Goofs

Upon greeting a nude Ashley (Craig Kelly), Harvey (David Gant) remarks to him: "I see you're one of Cromwell's boys -- a roundhead [circumcised] as opposed to a cavalier [uncircumcised]." However, mere moments earlier, a full frontal shot of Kelly reveals a generous foreskin. See more »

Quotes

Sophie: We are saving him!
Harvey: From?
Sophie: Being hurled.
Harvey: Ah, we tried to explain, but... Until a few years ago, the goat was indeed sacrificed. Then there was a demonstration...
Maggie: Harvey and I were there. Young people came all over Spain, wonderful stuff!
Harvey: Now the celebration ends with the goat being freed and a piñata full of sweets being thrown down from a great height for the young children.
Maggie: It's quite lovely!
Harvey: I suggest you put him back where you found him. He'll be quite safe.

User Reviews

Surprisingly enjoyable, undemanding Britcom. Overall - recommended!
24 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

I enjoyed this comedy which had some rather stereotyped but still amusing characters in a fast-paced fairly intelligent Britcom set on the Costa Del Sol in Southern Spain. The film was rather short, but it adds up to a decent, light evening's entertainment, with some decent comedic high spots. A number of familiar & skilled character actors pop up during the film and Rik Mayall & Eddie Webber were good to watch in their respective roles as a slimy estate agent and timeshare victim. It will come as no surprise that both Tom Bell & Mike Reid were perfectly cast as aging gangsters.

The film left me feeling that more could have been developed, however and the film finished a little abruptly. Nonetheless, it's a well scripted and acted comedy of particular interest to anyone who has visited the Costa del Sol. The filmmakers have shown promise here and I hope that their next film fulfills the potential hinted at in "Oh Marbella".

Overall - recommended.
