Queen's English is every language...

I am watching The Pianist and it dawned on me that I understand Polish! Okay, maybe not, but why is it that any film that takes place in a different land where it is understood that they speak a different language, the actors speak with a British accent? They did it in the Sound of Music, the Pianist.. etc..
Hey Jen, when you were speaking "French" to the guy in Quebec, you should have used a British accent, not a French one. He probably would have understood you then.

Yeah, that's pretty much how -- how you say? -- most of my accents sound anyway. Cheers! Jen

Well....to be fair to the actors in Sound of Music....the two main leads are British.

Actually Christopher Plummer is Canadian. The kids were American. They just did it in a British Accent because of Julie Andrews.

Well I'll be buggered......I thought Plumber was English.
