Goofs

Toward the end of the movie (33 minute to the end), they are showing and commenting about a fruit they call "kumquat" which is in fact a "Physalis" also called "Cape Gooseberry", a fruit originally from Chile and Peru. A Kumquat is like a miniature orange with leathery leaves, and is rarely eaten raw because of its citrus like flavor. A physalis has a paper-like husk like a tomatillo and is very sweet when ripe.

Tedious ego-trip
14 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

I was so disappointed as I have liked Steve Cougan's previous work. The movie tried to give the impression that the dialogue between Cougan and Brydon was spontaneous but came over as completely premeditated and precisely scripted so it lost all credibility. The dialogue -- especially the very good impressions by Brydon -- we so overdone and self serving they became tedious and we both were looking at our watches after 40 minutes. I hardly laughed at this comedy; the shots of the food and scenery were stunning but were too fleeting to add value to the plot.

Too many in-jokes and poetry/movie-aficionado references only heightened the impression that the movie is a self- serving Ego-trip.
