Goofs

In the movie, "Bruce" sees the Boss of Bosses giving Freddy the "Kiss Of Death" and mentions that he knows about the kiss because he watched the Godfather movies. "Bruce" also mentions to the Boss of Bosses that he doesn't kiss as good as Marlon Brando. In actuality, Marlon Brando never gave the kiss of death in the original film "The Godfather". The kiss of death was actually first given by Al Pacino in "The Godfather Part II" to John Cazale. See more »

Quotes

Anita: Look, I'm a federal agent.
Freddy: Oh, my God.
Anita: The necklace I gave you was an electronic microphone. We've monitored all your conversations. We know your locations, all over the country.
Freddy: Oh, my God!
Bruce: Can't you say anything but, "Oh, my God"?
Anita: They used you, Bruce! You were their stooge! You weren't delivering flour, you were delivering cocaine. Drugs, Bruce.
Bruce: Drugs! Oh, my Buddah!

Funniest Movie ever
21 March 2001 | by (Fiji) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie for the first time about a week ago and it is the funniest movie I have ever seen! It can be goofy sometimes, but it is so ridiculously goofy that you still laugh. If you like comedies I HIGHLY recommend this movie for your viewing pleasure.

Lets ask Mikey to do it, he'll try anything
