Trivia

The filmmakers chose San Francisco as the film's setting, citing that it seemed like the ideal place for Charlie the poet to live. Mike Myers admired the city's scene for its clothes, music and sensibilities but particularly its coffee-house culture. Myers noted that residents seemed to favor coffee-houses over bars. See more »

Goofs

When e first see the honeymoon hotel (in reality Dunsmuir House) there is a tower that is not there in on the real hotel. Regardless of that, in the second shot of the hotel, the tower is missing. Also, there are no mountains/cliffs in the background. See more »

Tony Giardino: It's practically a bowl.
Charlie Mackenzie: It's like Campbell's Cup-O'-ccino!
Charlie Mackenzie: [laughing at his Campbell's joke and wiping his tears] Oh, My sides. Please. Aidez-moi.

This may be Mike Myers funniest movie EVER!
16 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

For a first (and I know it's not his absolute first but close to it) this movie was fantastic. The more I watched, the funnier it got and the best are the small nuances.

After following his work and being a fan of his other films I appreciate the humour he's written into this movie even more.

If there's any doubt that this is a masterpiece, bring up the scene where he visits his parents in any crowd and watch the quotables start flying.

When asked what my favorite movie of all time is (a supremely tough question for a movie buff) this one always pops out first. It's cute, smart, hilarious, and no body gets hurt! Watch it! Love it!
