Continuity mistake: When George and Lucy are on the boat, after Lucy almost falls down the steps, they are standing at a table.

Trivia: In the trailers (on the radio in the UK, anyway), there's a bit with Hugh Grant saying something like "This is no job for a grown up - drinking without being responsible...actually, it doesn't sound that bad". This was never in the finished film.
