Trivia

When Matthew, Mark and Luke hijack the helicopter pilot, you see a sign on the building behind the helicopter that reads Harry Haus Helicopter service. The pilot they kidnap is in fact Harry Hauss. See more »

Goofs

The rail car painting at the entrance to Cody Abilene's yacht clearly portrays an observation car rather than a caboose as Cody states in the narration. An observation car is coupled to the end of a passenger train and often carries upscale amenities such as a lounge for first class passengers. A caboose is a much more Spartan car used to carry crewmen of a freight train. See more »

Quotes

May: Cody, Cody, Cody. I understand you're a private investigator.
Faye: And we want to know if you'll investigate our privates.
May: Mmm hmm.

Greatest movie ever made...
6 October 2001 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

And I've still yet to finish watching it! Definitely the guiltiest pleasure one could have. How can you not like a movie that features quasi-attractive 80's playmates and a red DeLorean! I recommend this to everyone.
