John calls Ed a "backstabbing pig" when he finds out that the FBI has closed down the place where he works. However, it looks like "pig" replaced "prick" in post production to gain a PG-13 rating. See more »

I don't BUY many movies, once you've seen them, then what? But this is one that I bought! This one I palm off on house guests that are bored with playing pinochle. And I have watched it over and over as other members of the family watch it, and I enjoy it just as much as the first time! Don Ameche did a wonderful job on this one, Selleck also, and both pulled the comedy off just right. Yes, I believe that a guy like Selleck could have that much bad luck in the movie! (We are asked to believe much more than that sometimes!) And I think Amache was hilarious with his Alzheimer's schtick! And I did have a grandfather that suffered with it, so climb off me on that point. It's like watching somebody take a pratfall... and who hasn't smiled at one of those?
