Did You Know?
Eva Longoria appeared as a Super Club employee named Lily, in a scene filmed as an alternate opening deleted from the theatrical release. The scene is found in the "Special Features" section of the DVD.
The positions of the golden stars in the chart change throughout the movie. For example, the November 3rd star was placed upside down at first (1 point facing down), but in future views of the chart, it is upright (2 points facing down).
Wow, that's gotta hurt. I mean, he's always doin' that to you. Stealing your thunder. You remember the red head? In gardening? Boinked her behind the monkey grass. And the asian in automotive? Did her on a pile of carburetors. Oh, and the blonde in frozen foods, with the… Doink! Doink! Turkeys done! Remember her?

I wasn't expecting much…
I wasn't expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised. I laughed at
several witty lines, especially one where Zach corrected Vince's
grammar, but Vince didn't get it. Even Jessica Simpson didn't bother me
because they didn't try to inflate her intelligence; they just made her
a rather bland character.
The plot isn't original, but watching Vince pretend he was Tom Cruise
from Cocktail made me laugh. When I watch this sort of movie I want to
laugh and I did just that. Dane Cook was a pleasant surprise too. I had
never seen anything with him. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie even
though I didn't think that I would.
