It's announced that the doped horse, Sweet Sue, won the third race at Hollywood Park and the fourth race at Santa Anita. Hollywood Park is in Inglewood and Santa Anita is in Arcadia. Depending on which route you take, this is a 32-34 mile trip that would take 46 minutes. Meaning, the drugs given the horse were so powerful that it was able to win two races in the same day on two different tracks that were 30+ miles apart. Adding to the artistic license, it's noted that Sweet Sue "ran the last furlong backward, but still won by a tail." See more »

I just saw this movie tonight, actually the last twenty minutes, and according to IMDb, it says that Dennis Franz is non credited, but as the credits rolled, he was in them...
It was an OK movie, and I enjoyed what I did see, and looking at the actors before they were household names was funny too.
It is a good movie for those of you who wish to just sit back and laugh at good old slapstick, and mindless entertainment.
Ted Danson is always hilarious, and found it quite funny seeing him make himself comfortable behind the bar in the mansion. His character was hilarious as the skirt chasing fool, just as his future character, Sam Malone would be in Cheers!
Cheers to all the actors who have gone on to make better and bigger movies, and shows!
