Did You Know?


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.

Anthony LaPaglia (Tony) noticeably corpses (breaking character by laughing) during Stuart's rant about Colonel Sanders. He almost corpses several times earlier in the scene but manages to recover, a couple of times using his beer bottle to hide his mouth. See more »

Charlie Mackenzie: Excuse me, miss? There seems to be a mistake. I believe I ordered the *large* cappuccino. *Hello!* Look at the size of this thing.
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.

Underrated Comedy
26 September 1999 | by See all my reviews

Probably one of Mike Myers' finest films. The film is the story of Charlie MacKenzie, a commitment phobic who performs in a coffeehouse as a poet. Charlie is looking for the right girl of which he finds in Harriet, an attractive butcher whom Charlie falls head over heels for. The two begin to date but Charlie begins questioning his relationship when clues pointing to an serial killer show up and point directly to Harriet. Funny performances from Mike Myers pulling double duty as sarcastic Charlie and his Scottish dad Stuart MacKenzie, Brenda Fricker as Charlie's horny mother who's got the hots for Tony, Anthony LaPaglia as best friend Tony, and Nancy Travis as girlfriend Harriet. Look for a few surprise cameos from the likes of late great Phil Hartman, Michael Richards, Alan Arkin, Charles Grodin, Steven Wright, and Debi Mazar. Definitely a good rent on a Saturday night.
