When the honeymoon inn emcee is announcing the newlyweds, the first word he is heard saying is "Folks," but his lips don't start moving until the second word, "to." In fact, he ends the same sentence in the repeated words "folks," so this was probably a mistakenly repeated word when the monologue was re-recorded for the film's audio. See more »
Excuse me, miss? There seems to be a mistake. I believe I ordered the *large* cappuccino. *Hello!* Look at the size of this thing.
It's practically a bowl.
It's like Campbell's Cup-O'-ccino!

In this greatly under-rated film, Mike Myers plays a man scared of commitment, until that is he meets Harriet and they fall in love, but does she have a rather macabre secret?
This film flows wonderfully, carrying you along before you realise it, right until the end.
Some of the better comedic moments, though, come from the cameos, especially by Steven Wright and Charles Grodin, who is always wonderful, whatever film he is in, although the poetry scenes are quite funny too.
For some reason this film was not as successful as other Mike Myers' efforts such as the Wayne's Worlds, and it does appear that audiences prefer Myers in character than as himself, and indeed you will come out liking Myers better as his father than as his main role, but nevertheless a great movie!
