Did You Know?
This film marks the last leading role for Chris Farley who died five months before the film released. However it is not his last film appearance as he had a cameo for the film Dirty Work released later that same year.
When Leslie Edwards is watching Guy's wife bathing, she has a thong tan line.
He look in our tent! He look at my woman! He saw 'er breast.
Her breast? You saw her breast?
For a comedy that got trashed in reviews and rediculed by movie-goers, I
find this movie to be incredibly funny. The first time I saw the movie was
in the theater at which time I laughed at the "obvious" laugh-parts, but
was not until I had seen it another two or three times before I picked up
the absolutely hysterical dialogue, terriffic comedy styles of the various
supporting characters, and the sheer brilliance and irony the script
presents. If you know anything about history, this movie becomes instantly
funny. If you are a fan of almost Simpsons-style "random" humor, this film
is instantly funny. Never be turned off by the first glance of this film.
you dismiss it as "poor comedy" you will be missing out.
