What's the main difference between English and American movies?

I have chosen clips from from two actors that, could be considered representatives of their respective countries: Hugh Grant and Arnold  Schwarzenegger.

That's my impression, what's yours?

This is the English clip.



And the American.

  • In that case, I recommend the original 'The Ladykillers' from 1955 as I assume you will have seen the Tom Hanks remake from 2004.  

    If you like that you might like to explore other Ealing comedies, notable of which are 'The Man In The White Suit', 'The Lavender Hill Mob'and 'Passport To Pimlico'.  :)

  • Yes, I have watched The Lady Killers. 
    Thank you for the recommendations,
    I promise I will check each and everyone of those.

  • I watched the original Bedazzled today and I have to say that although the idea was the same, they were two very different movies. 
    I liked this scene .

  • I find it to be mildly infuriating humour, but I think that's the point of the plot.  :)

  • Michael Caine was asked this question by an American TV interviewer. He said, "In America you make movies; in Britain we make talkies." It seemed appropriate.

  • You're kinder than I deserve. I'll soon work up some enthusiasm. (It's Easter Sunday in Oz today. My car is about to rise from the dead. Just waiting on a taxi to go pick it up from the smash repair shop. Back later on.)
