Technical Specs

Runtime:



Did You Know?

Trivia:
On Shoop's left hand, you can see that he has injured one of his fingers and it appears to have been smashed. This occurred when Mark Harmon had to actually put out the fire on the couch during the party scene that grew quickly out of control.

Goofs:
Audio/visual unsynchronized: When Mr. Shoop is trying to convince Wondermutt that Bob has come back by cutting a new doll's head off, he states something like, "Wondermutt, look, I found him - it's Bob" as he holds up the head. All the while his mouth is visible in the background and it does not move during the entire sentence.

Quotes:
[the classroom is the scene of a bloodbath]
Phil Gills: What is wrong with you people?
Dave: It's just like you said Gills! We're psychopaths! Somebody better call the school nurse!



User Review

It Makes Me Laugh

Rating: 7/10

This is not a great movie and it got bad reviews, but it stays in the movie rotations of many television stations. Why? Because it is funny. Just watch it and enjoy. It is really aimed at young teens and they will probably like it best.
