Alcatraz Island Ranger Vicky states that many of the Park Rangers are former guards of Alcatraz, including himself. The prison closed on 21 March 1963, 30 years prior to this movie. This would have made Vicky a teenager at best when the prison closed, and too young to be employed as a guard. However, Ranger Vicky is most likely just telling a tall tale. 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!
