Goofs

When Jack's mother comes to visit Mary, you can see in the background what appears to be a little boy standing in front of a window. There is a rumor that this is the ghost of a little boy who died in the apartment in which the film was shot. This rumor is false, as the interiors were all shot on a sound stage in a movie studio. The "ghost" is actually a cardboard cut-out of Jack wearing a tuxedo. This prop appears later in the film, when Mary's mother comes to collect her. Some argue that "it's smaller" or "it's dressed differently", but close examination reveals that it really is the cardboard prop. See more »

great 80s humour
26 March 2003 | by trvwatsonSee all my reviews

Having only watched this movie once when it first came out, i decided to go into it with an open mind as its quite an old film, and i couldn't remember much about it, it was very funny but also at times a little daft, i didn't see the logic in bringing in the hole drug smuggling story line it did put a damper on things and ruined the story just a little, but all in all a really funny film with hilarious lines, and the 80s humour still sounds good today.
