Trivia: During the scene where Billy Connelly is talking to the Russian family the mother says something about the insurance companies which the father translates as "they are not nice people". The word the mother uses is "svoloch" which would more accurately be translated as "they are f**kers."
Other mistake: Near the start of the film Billy Connelly hurts his foot. He can't walk without using a crutch, but not that long after he hurts it he manages to drive without any bother. Would this not be a danger to drivers, and how can he drive so well only a short while after a sharp piece of wood has just gone through his foot?
Doctor: Forceps. Pliers. Bone nibblers.
Steve Meyers: Bone nibblers? What the hell are bone nibblers?
Doctor: You're a very lucky man.
Steve Meyers: Oh yes, it's been a brilliant day all round. Why don't you have a look at my prostate while you've got the bone nibblers handy.
