Trivia

When Maggie meets Samuel L. Jackson, she says he played Morpheus in The Matrix (1999), and he corrects her saying it was Laurence Fishburne. The scene is based on the fact that Jackson is often mistaken for Fishburne (and vice versa) in real life. See more »

Quotes

Maggie Jacobs: Why don't you just tell him you don't want to be his friend?
Andy Millman: It's too damning. You can't say that to someone. That is saying that you fundamentally have a problem with their personality.
Maggie Jacobs: What are you gonna do?
Andy Millman: The only honourable thing I can do.
Maggie Jacobs: What?
Andy Millman: Add him to the long list of people that I have to avoid for the rest of my life. You can never have that time back.

Samuel L Jackson
30 March 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant certainly can do excruciating comedy and here they turn up the dial to 11.

Maggie fancies a black actor in the latest film that she and Andy are Extras in but every time she utters a word to him she ends up making an unintentional racial mishap. The funniest scene is where Andy does a test on her whether she is a racist or not and has to answer some questions. These include questions such as who is the Prime Minister of Britain and then who is the Prime Minister of Botswana plus similar types of questions.

Andy has problems of his own. Although he has bagged a speaking role in the movie opposite Samuel L Jackson but he seems to be pursued by Dullard (Steven Speirs) a middle aged lonely Welshman who just wants to have dinner with him. Andy just cannot shake him off and ends up going to a cosy restaurant with him.
