In several scenes Max suffers from heart problems. In a later interview, Fred Gwynne said that he actually had a real heart attack while filming one of those scenes. The cameras kept rolling as they called 911, and the director decided to keep the footage of the real heart attack in the movie. Fred got out of the hospital a few days later, and managed to finish the filming on schedule. See more »

I saw this movie with my dad. I must have been pretty young, around 15. It was on Star Movies one afternoon.The movie started a bit vaguely, but you could tell those robbers were gathering up for a score. It really caught pace after the first half hour.
All the actors are great, especially Blades and Lou Diamond. I Guess it's the ensemble, they just play so well together. I can watch this film anytime.I think it is the relative stupidity of the plot and the characters trying to deal with a very weird score. The jokes are not corny but they are subtle and extreme at the same time that make them so hilarious.
A perfect comedy for a lazy afternoon.
