Trivia:
The Mexican flower woman at the airport who cries "Flores! Flores para los muertos!" is a tribute to A Streetcar Named Desire (1951) in which a Mexican flower woman cries the same phrase outside Stanley Kowalski's apartment. It also could be a reference to Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966), another film about a bickering couple.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: When Grimm first enters the bank he tells nobody to move. He charges towards a woman with a dog saying "What did I just say?". When he was walking up the dog owner was "hugging" the dog around the neck and no collar or tags can be seen. Immediately following she is just holding the dog with the collar and tags resting on her hand.See more »
Quotes:
Phyllis:Honey, babe? You've got a gun - shoot them.
Grimm:I want to, but they're fur-bearing. I'd need some kind of permit, wouldn't I?
[to construction workers, sarcastically]
Grimm:You know, I want to thank you guys, you could've given us help, but you've given us so much more.
Street Sign Worker:[cheerfully] Hey, that's what we're here for, right?

Don't miss out on this hilarious movie!, 14 May 2001
Author: beckmgt1

This movie is really great. It's got a great cast, a very funny story, and some clever writing. But it's been so ignored; and I can't understand why! I never see it on TV, and it's not available on DVD; it's hardly ever mentioned anywhere! Every time I go buy DVDs, I look for this one, hoping that maybe this time it'll be there. It hasn't been so far, and it's always a let-down. It's a tremendously funny movie, which I'd love to have in my collection! And if you like to laugh, then you'd be doing yourself a favor to pick this one up! Especially if you're a fan of Murray or Quaid. But even if you're not, you couldn't watch this one and not laugh. As someone else commented, this is a shamefully "underrated gem."

So here's my plea to the people who decide such things: PUT QUICK CHANGE ON DVD!!! PLEASE! I WANT IT!
