Quotes

[debating whether they are lost or not while climbing a hill]
Prince Habib: I say we are lost.
Mr. Slyman: We ar not lost. We are Arabs. Lost is when you don't know where you are going.
Prince Habib: Well that is the point, where are we going?
Mr. Slyman: We are going uphill.
Prince Habib: Well, at least when we get to the top, we will know exactly where we are. (the two are now at the top, looking around them, but only see more hills)

Hey man, thins are tough all over.
4 June 2005 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I really liked this movie. Besides being funny, it really did a decent job of illustrating how nobody's life tends to be a a bed of roses regardless of who somebody is or isn't. I've often thought of the film to put things in a different perspective when I've found myself envying another person for whatever reason. Chances are, it's not easy being anybody.

It was largely a departure from all of the drug humor in previous films, but the drug was going at full steam ahead around when it came out. Besides, it was about time they branched out and explored new humor horizons.
