The factor first to place a smile on my face was the well timed comedy, sarcastic comebacks and the excellent interactions between the film's many different characters. Harris, Toby Stephens (Black Sails series), is the first to raise eyebrows to Richard's statements even questioning why bears avoid the Hungarian border (is it because they don't have passports?). Steve, Danny Dyer (of Eastenders fame for any Brits out there paying attention) is another memorable character, perhaps my favorite in this movie, who can't seem to take anything seriously perhaps due to the fact that he spends most of the excursion higher than an orbiting satellite in a mushroom induced hallucinogenic state. Other characters only add to the very enjoyable camaraderie and friendly one-upping aura that many, I suspect, can easily relate to in a business setting.
