I only remember Chris having
a huge omelette ...
That's certainly because I like
eggs. Image

It couldn't happen here is good...after smoking weed ! I like the scene where Chris is running with those motocyclers and the scene when Neil and Chris go to buy a car. "How much ?" and the seller talks about everything else except the price and then the seller says 2000 and Neil says 500, that always make me laugh.

The only way I'll ever watch it again is if it's released on DVD.

Still, it's nice to have it in the collection.

But as they say in the backround "You win, we lose. Everytime". :lol:
It´s actually 3000 what the seller says.

Chris:
-I´ve got a 12-inch plonker.

I agree...it's a stoner classic!

I many times stop the video in the middle and go to sleep but on the other hand usually I watch it right through.

Many times... Usually... How many times have you watched that thing anyway? And, more importantly, why did you watch it more than once? Even though it features Chris, I'd have thunk having to watch the movie again was a price too high even for you to pay

You watched it many times???!!! You deserve a medal. The only bit I can remember being any good is the bit with Gareth Hunt in the cafe & Chris starts to p1ss himself laughing. Hired it out on video when it first came out. I have since bought it but it's never come out the box :lol:
