Early in the movie Michael gets into a car (possibly VW Golf mk3) which was a 1995 registration, however when we see him pull in to speak to his father the car has a 2001 reg plate. A closer shot in the same scene reveals the 95 plate again. See more »
Voice of The Reaper:
The ocean, huh? Never fails to provoke a person to musing on philosophical shit. Heavy shit, like life and death, and fate, and all that bewildering shit. The fuckin' universe.

" Perrier's Bounty", charming little caper had more potential then result. Dark, off-beat comedy or thriller ( depends on the outlook), has a lot of promise, but , unfortunately, delivers way less than expected. Grant it, it has an interesting idea, quirky direction, exceptional cast filled with marvelous British actors. But... the movie is little too self-involved and quite a lot in love with itself. In effort to be original and unique, it just went too far. We have viscous dogs and gay gangsters and love interest and the estranged parents, and much more of the same, perhaps original, but nevertheless messy and illogical details. It distracted itself from the main purpose, to tell a story.
