Did You Know?
The final film to use the 1980's 20th Century Fox logo. The CGI logo would make its debut in
The Scout, another film starring Brendan Fraser.
As "The Lone Rangers" take stage near the end of the movie a point is made that the stage equipment are non-functional props. Yet after Chaz refuses to play Ian grabs and shouts into a "prop" microphone.

Not given enough credit
This is a great movie that simply doesn't get alot of credit.
An amatuer band known as the Lone Rangers (Fraser, Buscemi, Sandler) sneak

This movie has an original plot line with good humour and good acting.
in mind that this movie comes very early on in the careers of all three
title characters. Personally I find the calibre of acting that Fraser and
Sandler have in this movie better than some that came afterwards.
When you start watching this movie, you'll want to finish it. Perfect
example, my room mate who came in the room looking for something ended up
staying for the whole movie.
Give this baby a chance. If you don't like it, you've lost the price of a
