The director saw 40 women for the role of Odette. They liked Geena Davis and when she pulled off a compelling Bela Lugosi accent, they knew they had their Odette. See more »
The plane shown taking off in the opening credits is not the same type of plane shown flying in the air, and the plane shown landing is yet a third type. This could be a goof, but in the 1980s it likely would have been a connecting flight. See more »
This movie is possibly my favorite ever. The comedy is at times intelligent, at other times just plain slapstick-style hilarious (micheal richards, slapstick similar to "kramer" from seinfeld style action), and at the best times the movie contains that awesome brand of sarcastic comedy that jeff goldblum is famous for. I love jeff goldblum and certainly all of the other actors of this fine film. Jeffery Jones, whose amazing comedy stylings were also a part of what made Ferris Bueller's day off and beetle juice great movies, brings the same amount of quality acting to this flick. Speaking of beetle juice, i would have to compare this movie with that, they both are extremely funny movies that have horror based plots. Plus, this movie has lobotomy in it!
