Trivia

When exiting the airport terminal to meet Mrs. Houk, Clara Peller turns to the skycap and asks, "Where's the bags?" This is a homage to her 1984 "Where's the beef?" advertising campaign for the Wendy's fast food restaurant chain in which she always asked "Where's the beef?". See more »

Goofs

When Joan Pedilo loses control of her car, bowling balls go crashing through the back window. The police impound her car and when Joan's car is released from impound, the window is back to normal. As the chief drives by the long line of cars pulled over just before the end credits roll, the window is broken out again. See more »

Hilarious!!!!!
13 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the funniest movies i've ever seen. Laugh out loud funny.

The only way you wouldn't enjoy this movie is if you're some stuck up elitist prick who only likes movies with subtitles or lame crap that the Oscar's usually gush over.

If you actually have a sense of humor you will bust a gut while watching this movie, especially the big chase scene at the end.

Decent Cast with Jennifer Tilly, Stacy Keech, Sally Kellerman, Fred Willard and starring Bill Murray's brother!

Great 80's flick, if i had to compare it to another movie, i'd say Mark Harmon's 80's flick Summer School is kinda similar.
