Did You Know?

Although it's still unclear exactly what it means, Mamie Van Doren's baffling sign-off line ("It sure don't taste like tomato juice!") is a take-off on a popular TV commercial (for V-8 tomato juice) of the era. (Clarification: V-8 Juice is red and has the same consistency as tomato juice, so the line from the commercial is [It looks like tomato juice, but] "It sure doesn't taste like tomato juice.")See more »

Highly underrated, outrageous film that's truely overlooked, 2 September 2001
Author: David ( from Los Angeles

What a breath of fresh air this movie is. It has the wit of Frasier, the physical antics of a Jim Carey picture and the insight into characters that has a real bent outlook on life. It's dark, funny and full of life. It certainly should be on anyone's overlooked list.
