Such a British Thing To Do

I heard a bit of Bob Mondell0's review of the movie The Trip on the way from work. It's not that I want to see it, I most likely won't, but it was quite delightful when Bob went into some detail about Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon imitating Sean Connery and Micheal Caine in the movie. He also makes a point that you can imagine Sean Connery and Michael Caine's voice, but you can't imagine Brad Pitt's or Angelina Joline's. Spot on, that.

One of my fav parts of Train Spotting was this constant bit of dueling Sean Connery from Sick Boy and Renton.

Sick Boy: [Sean Connery accent] Do you shee the beasht? Have you got it in your shights?
Mark "Rent-boy" Renton: [aiming the pellet gun at a dog] Clear enough, Missh Moneypenny! This should preshent no shignificant problemsh!
[shoots the dog which starts attacking its owner]
Sick Boy: For a vegetarian, Rents, you're a fuckin' EVIL shot!
