Trivia

The videogame Gunther plays in the Apartment is Super Mario Bros. 3 for the Nintendo Entertainment System. This is one of two movies that previewed the game. See more »

Goofs

When Gunther is stealing his car back from the car show, he is being shot at and jumps out of a huge window. When he lands outside the window, the passenger-side light is clearly damaged, and falls out. However, in the next shot, the car is in mint condition, the light still in place, and the windows (which were shattered in the shooting) are also intact. See more »

Crazy Credits

When the credits finish, we see that "Vince" (James Tolkan) is still tied in the chair and he says, "come on guys, come on". See more »

Guilty pleasure! (also contains a hidden gem for Star Wars fans)
3 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I stumbled across this film on one those free movie networks. I thought I would watch for a few minutes to laugh at some of the cheesiness of the late 80's/early 90's, and I ended up watching the whole thing. The movie was indeed cheesy with mostly bad acting and a plot full of holes, but it's packed full of cerebral jokes and period references. Watch it by yourself, or with someone who appreciates that era, so you can relax and not feel guilty about laughing out loud. The lead actor does a good job and holds the movie together.

There are blatant plugs for some of the products from that year. Also, Star Wars fans will recognize and appreciate a scene by Billy Dee Williams that parodies one of his scenes from Empire Strikes Back.

Overall, a fun movie for anyone 35 or older. The young and/or cynical are just not going to get it.
