When the Police arrive after the 'house smashing' scene one of the vehicles is a Bedford CF with a 1976 registration plate. Whilst the vehicle was available in 1976, the model shown is a post 1980 face lifted version with a plastic radiator grille. See more »
This film is absolutey delightful, a combination of a well-written and hilarious script, and some amazing art direction. Every scene in this movie presents its audience with an eyeful of imaginative staging. If you liked the movie The Royal Tennenbaums, see this... its more funny and even more visually rich.
