The scene with the bats in the roof and someone bagging Susan's head is a large reference to The Office (2005), one of Paul Feig's other works where Dwight Schrute discovers bats are in the roof and traps one over Meredith's head with a bag. See more »
The BMW 740d in the car chase is a diesel, but the sounds coming from it are that of a petrol car. Very noticeable when it revs.
The 4- or 3-Series later on in the film is a petrol, but has been given a V8-sounding note, which it doesn't have. See more »

This and Kingsman were movies that I was desperate to watch, I must say I loved them both, hopefully this will start a new wave of James Bond inspired comedies. Funny from start to finish, I absolutely loved it, it felt similar to Kingsman if I'm being honest,
The most random moment of all was seeing that Ukranian Eurovision song contest entry from a few years back, never thought I'd ever be seeing that again!
Melissa McCarthy has ridiculously good comic timing, she is naturally funny, and her genius is put to great use in this film, a truly hilarious woman, she manages to be funny and totally lovable too. Miranda Hart was an unexpected treat, very funny, adding a different slant to the humour as Nancy. Jason Statham was utterly brilliant, he always plays the same type of character, wonderful to see him sending himself up.
Just a fun movie you can watch and re-watch. 8/10
