Trivia

Brendan Fraser has a cameo as Link, his character from Encino Man (1992), which also starred Pauly Shore. Crawl (Shore) sees Link at a party dressed as he appeared in the last scene of the movie, and says "cool costume". Link eats a plastic frog and walks away as Crawl mouths the words "was that...?", implying that Link and Crawl had met before. See more »

Goofs

When Crawl arrives in South Dakota and is chasing the chickens, he almost runs into the pen where the bull is. When he encounters the bull, a wire can be seen pulling on the bull's horns to make his head move. See more »

Quotes

Crawl: Going into European Studies, buddy.
Crawl: I mean, cruising around Europe, backpacking, right ?
Crawl: Munchin' on ch-ch-ch-cheese, a little vino.

Pauly Shore deserved an Oscar
9 July 2002 | by (Tucson, AZ) – See all my reviews

Along with In the Army!, this ranks as one of Pauly Shore's best movies, if there is such a thing. While the whole West Coast-meets- Midwest-culture-clash isn't anything new, this film proves to make the story a little more entertaining with the wild and unpredictable antics of a then fresh Shore. While the change in values probably would have gone in the other direction, the whole concept was rather entertaining. Not only was Shore's interaction with the family hilarious, it also had Carla Gugino and Tiffani- Amber Theissen (she'll always have the Amber in my book) in two ravishing and early roles. One of those films I have no problem watching when it is on TV.
