  1. This film has a justifiable cult status here. Many fans watch it over and over, and can recite the script. The quotes from it are many and varied, and you might hear them in restaurants, or on a bus. Sadly, Richard Griffiths is no longer with us, but Grant went on to star in many fine dramas, as well as making TV documentaries.
    Good call. John.
    Best wishes, Pete.
