Trivia

Most of the locations and especially the banks names are fictitious, asides from Henleaze, which is a genuine borough in North Bristol. The Ardagh Bowling Club, also in Henleaze is also genuine. The estate agent incorrectly refers to the club being on Coldharbour Road, it is on a road that runs onto that one called Kellaway Avenue. See more »

Goofs

Amusing, light entetainment
9 September 2018 | by brenstocktonSee all my reviews

Fun movie. Escapist. If you're looking for gritty crime drama, move on. But if you're looking for charming characters, good performances, and a feel good movie where the real bad guys get what's coming to them, then you will enjoy this little gem.
