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 »

Much funnier when you've lived in Germany
9 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

To appreciate this movie the best you have to have lived in Germany during the 80s and 90s. My favorite scene is when Gunther looks for a bottle of Coke and is overwhelmed by "Coke with sugar, Coke without sugar, Coke with caffeine, Coke without caffeine, Coke with caffeine without sugar ... In Germany you only have one choice - Coke!" This was absolutely true! The reviewer who thought Gunther was saying his car runs on "tubers" is wrong. Gunther is saying "Rueben" which is the German word for Turnips. A car that runs on turnips is funnier than a car that runs on potatoes! "Driving Me Crazy" can be compared to "The Gods Must Be Crazy" (which I also like) in terms of comedy. Don't expect Woody Allen-type humor. Pretend you're back in junior high to enjoy this movie the most.
