| Brilliant script, brilliant cinematography, great acting and soundtrack
Best comedy in years, friend turned me on to this hilarious comedy of errors and glad she did. The film is damn near flawless, forces you to pay attention to the twists and turns through it's witty dialogue. Wonderfully photographed with brilliant camerawork but not overdone. Worth several sittings and we could learn alot in Hollywood from this one....

Quotes

Bacon: Right. Let's sort the buyers from the spyers, the needy from the greedy, and those who trust me from the ones who don't, because if you can't see value here today, you're not up here shopping. You're up here shoplifting. You see these goods? Never ...


Goofs

When Tom is explaining the cheque scam to Soap and Bacon, in the last shot of Soap and Bacon the liquid level has lowered in the glass in front of Bacon but Bacon is not drinking from it. In the same shot there is also an extra cigarette butt in the ashtray although Soap doesn't stub out his cigarette.


Crazy Credits

In the closing credits, the character names in the cast list are shown entirely in lower-case letters with no initial capital letters.


Alternate Versions

New footage included in director's cut:

  • at the very start of film, Ed is shown explaining the rules of 3 Card Brag to two people;
  • the scene where Big Chris goes to see the man on the sunbed is longer
  • Tom, Soap and Bacon are shown walking through the pub to the bar while Ed is playing cards
  • the earlier stages of the card game are shown
  • Alan explains to Ed the "history" between JD and Harry
  • when Barry is talking to the two scousers the dialogue is different
  • when Big Chris is walking into Harry's office near the end, he meets the man who was on the sunbed near the start of the film.
  • when Ed is being interviewed by the police you see him finishing explaining the rules of 3 Card Brag to them (as seen at very start)
  • just before the credits, you see Soap telling a whole joke in the car when they are coming back from the job
  • three outtakes are shown during the credits: one with Soap telling a joke, the next where Barry asks one of the scouser's for an ice cream and one where a guy runs onto the set.
