Goofs

When the explosives are detonated at the wire fence, Misty simply hits the detonator plunger positioned all the way down against the body of the detonator, instead of pulling it all the way up and pushing it down. The generator inside could not have generated the electrical charge for detonation without the plunger being pulled all the way up and pushed down. See more »

what a misunderstood film
18 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is quite good comedy. First of all it has to do with beer! It has weird & stupid humour, but not even once does the pace slow down for a bit. It goes all the way, almost fresh even during the ending sequence, which must as tradition to be silly in american films. This one has some nice jokes - not the best, but surely enough for those who are looking for a nice old-school comedy.

Fast pace & hillarious characters (not mentioning the general beer-frenzy depicted in the film) are the two factors that make this an OK film.
