Continuity mistake: At the end of the movie when Steve and Anna are in the boat going across the harbour, in the background is a Shell petrol station on the shore. The boat is travelling from left to right across the screen, but as the camera shots change from Steve to Anna, or both at once, the Shell sign keeps changing its relative position to the boat.
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?
Visible crew/equipment: At the end of the film when the cockatoo has left the building and is flying outside, you can see a wire attached to its leg.
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."
Steve Meyers: What do you think of a moral victory?
Anna Redmond: A moral victory sounds good.
Primate: It's a sign.
Cardinal: A miracle.
Moderator: A winged messenger.
Gerry Ryan: It's a fing cockatoo.
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.
