However what did stay same was the storyline of playing tennis, talking to girls and helping friends out also two men fighting over a woman. Also uses of the same name for example Mr Potter. The comedy of it was much more modern and well thought out and witty, the comedy were things like taking the mick out of someone and just modern ‘banter’ that men would have with each other. Use of violence and guns to try and win the girl over however in the 6o film they had a game of tennis to try and impress the women. Also in the American one they used well -‐ known actors/actresses because they know now in society people go see a film because of the actors/actresses. A big advantage on the American remake was that they and big distributions Dimensions films. For the British film they had Pathe and Warner Bros.
