Harry: So, I'll take you out and show you my prop van in a bit, but first, coffee. How do you like it? Linda: Weak and white, like my men. Karl: Together, we were pure gold! Tony White: Question; where is a hunter's favourite place? Harry: Tony, I don't know. Kenya? Mike Francis: Well, I don't think anyone has seen a final quite like that, and I do not in any way mean that in a positive sense.

- The external, and most internal, shots of the theatre on Jersey, where the final of the Magic Shield competition is held, were shot at the Theatre Royal in Nottingham. Many of the theatre's ushers were recruited as extras to play ushers in the film.

- The idea of Harry making a Pros and Cons list about his girlfriend and being found out is inspired by an episode of Friends where Ross makes a Pros and Cons list about Rachel and is found out.
