Trivia

Chevy Chase was considered for the role of Harry Sultenfuss, but since he didn't have much experience acting in dramatic roles, producer Brian Grazer suggested Dan Aykroyd to director Howard Zieff instead as he had more experience, fresh off of an Oscar nomination for Driving Miss Daisy (1989). However, Aykroyd and Chase were both on Saturday Night Live (1975), and the they had also co-starred with each other in Spies Like Us (1985) and Nothing But Trouble (1991). See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Vada Sultenfuss: I was born jaundiced. Once I sat on a toilet seat at a truck stop and caught hemorrhoids. And I've learned to live with this chicken bone that's been lodged in my throat for the past three years. So I knew Dad would be devastated when he learned of my latest affliction.

If you don't cry, you have a heart of stone.
10 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

This film is fantastic. Honestly, i have never cried so much watching a movie, and i don't cry at movies much. But even though the bits towards the end which will have you bawling are what the film is remembered for, everything in this film is just...fantastic. parts are hilarious,parts are just sweet, and by the end of the film, you are genuinely caring for the characters.

If you haven't seen this film, WATCH IT. But don't find out what happens, watch it first. I lent the video i have to some friends, and all of them loved it, and told me they cried.

Seriously, this film will make you cry. big time.
