Trivia

After the bachelor party Gomez is seen making a bottle for Pubert with strange ingredients such as Worcestershire Sauce and a raw egg. This is an old hangover remedy sometimes referred to as 'Hair of the Dog', although 'hair of the dog' can also refer to drinking the same beverage that got you drunk the night before. Gomez then gives the bottle to Pubert and says 'Hair of the Pup'. Pubert is wearing sunglasses, implying a hangover. See more »

Ricci rules
3 November 2001 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is a film with several excellent performances, but that of Christina "Wednesday" Ricci is near perfect. The reluctant smile outside the "harmony hut" is Oscar material. And Christina as Pocahantas is the very definition of "cute".

Of the others, Joan Cusack also stands out. I doubt anyone else could play the part of "the black widow" quite as well, with just the right mix of sleaze and slapstick. Her deranged laughter alone is worth half the rental fee.

It may not be a classic but it is solid entertainment, with few if any weak passages. Go and see it!
