Trivia: Look at the name of the technical adviser in the opening credits - it's "Sun Tan Lo Tion".

Trivia: There was no music played during the filming of the party scene, so the cast members had to improvise their own dance steps as the scene continued. Although music was added to the final film later in production, you will notice that some of the actors are dancing too fast or doing the wrong steps to the music.

Trivia: When Pepe orders the evacuation of the hotel at the end of the movie, a group of holidaymakers run down the corridor and David Kernan, Sally Geeson and Joan Sims quite noticeably fall over. This was not scripted and left in the final print.
