Trivia

During the mock torture scene Jeff Blue (Dennis Quaid) says that his wife, Jane, is 'Doctor Natasha LotteLenya from the Rosa Klebb institute". Lotte Lenya portrayed Rosa Klebb in the 1963 James Bond film "From Russia With Love". In the book of the same name she is described as being an expert at inducing extreme pain and enjoying the act of torturing. See more »

Goofs

The Blues recognize the Newman family during the wedding at the beginning of the movie. Later, Vern Newman asks Jeff "You mean, you didn't know those people?" If Vern did not know those people, why was he there? If he knew them, why would he call them "those people?" See more »

Quotes

Frank: C-22
Jeff Blue: C-what?
Jane Blue: Plastic explosive. The most powerful plastic ever developed. So unstable even the army won't use it.
Jeff Blue: Oh, *that* C-22.

Okay, so it's not Alfred Hitchcock
30 June 2002 | by (Lawrenceville, GA) – See all my reviews

This is not Great Cinema, and it's not supposed to be. It's "I've had a bad day and don't want to think too hard" lighthearted fun. Not only are Dennis Quaid and Kathleen Turner great as Jeff and Jane Blue, but the supporting cast of Stanley Tucci ("that's 'MUERTE', as in 'DEATH'), Fiona Shaw (now perfect as Harry Potter's Aunt Petunia Dursley), Obba Babatunde and Larry Miller as the outclassed detectives, and Tom Arnold and Park Overall as the "normal" couple for balance make the whole cast shine. Park your brain, relax, enjoy, and remember, even GWTW is NOT "GWTW".
