Trivia

In the beginning of the film, where Deputies Halik and Morris ride off into the street on their motorcycles, there are two freeways signs noting "Birch Fwy". These were placards placed over the actual freeway signs, noting Harbor Freeway, in which the Los Angeles Police Department had ordered the placards to be immediately removed after the scenes were filmed.

Quotes

Terrence 'Doc' Williams: I'm in the car business and I can't drive.
Spencer Popadophalos: We're screwed. We got shafted.
Jeff Roth: My Dad's gonna kill me.
Wink Barnes: Not if we get to him first.
Scott Greeber: Let's face it. We're never gonna drive again.
Dana Cannon: Wait a minute here! I can't believe I'm hearing this. You think we're finished, washed up, history? Well, I've got news for ya: It's not over till it's over! Look at Michael Jackson. His hair caught on fire. Did he give up? No. He called the fire ...

Funniest move ever!!!!!!
19 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the funniest movie I have ever seen in my life. I have never laughed so hard at a movie in my life. The movie is so stupid that it is hilarious. The characters are unforgettable and they all fit in well together to make this movie so funny. The jokes in this movie are brilliant and the acting is excellent. This is the most underrated comedy and I recommend it to anyone who wants to have some good laughs. The old lady who can't see and the hypochondriac are probably the funniest characters but Dana is really funny also. I can recite most of this movie cause I have watched it over and over again. This movie is still funny no matter how many times you watch it.
