Question: In many reviews I've read of this film, folks say that, at the end, it is revealed that the bet between God and Satan for the first to reach 100 billion souls was all a joke by God on the devil. I have seen this film five times and never once (even after reading these things) did I hear/see anything that even remotely indicated that the contest was a joke. Can someone please fill me in on this?
Other mistake: After Stanley becomes the nun he demands one more wish, but George informs him that the ice lolly he got as a trial wish counted - which had cost him sixpence, and which George then pays him back. However, on the Post Office Tower, after Stanley saying he'd like to see what Margaret is doing, George lends him a telescope (also costing Stanley sixpence) which is then forgotten about when George reminds Stanley about the ice lolly.
