parkerr86302 is correct
27 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

parkerr86302 is correct about Pat McMahon (from Arizona's fabled WALLACE AND LADMO SHOW) having bit parts in the film.

I know. I was in the shoot too.

I was in three scenes at the Carefree house where the b-day party was filmed. One at the party, one on the roof of the garage with McMahon, and one where the director pulled me aside to shoot a very strange scene on the rocks in the backyard over the pool.

I had to arrange a set of dummies on the rocks, look over at where Cameron Mitchell was to stand, and say "OK, Zimmie?" I wonder if they will keep my scene in when the film is released. Should be hoot if it is.
