Trivia

In the bar one of the men is kidding Muerte (Stanley Tucci) about being defeated by a man with a "little baby". Muerte slams the man's head down on a glass, shattering the glass. Just before this happens the man covers the glass with his hand so that his face hits his hand, not the glass. 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 »

This is a funny, enjoyable comedy that Stanley Tucci walks away with!
6 September 2001 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

A word to those out there who view cinema as either High Art (CAPITALS clearly audible and firmly enunciated) or that it must have Meaning (ditto): This is not your movie, nor was it made with you as its audience. It is light, funny and meant to entertain. It does this fairly well. You may not like this, but, then, you don't have to. Last time I looked, films as art or with meaning exist. Watch them-I do. I also watch movies as well as films. Having both is not a mutually-exclusive proposition. The Bicycle Thief and Rashomon will not spontaneously combust because this film exists-or vice versa. End of sermon.

Dennis Quaid is funny, Kathleen Turner is a scream, the supporting cast is great (the two detectives, Larry Miller and Obba Babatunde are a riot), but Stanley Tucci, as Muerte, steals the movie. I don't care if the plot has more holes than a piece of Swiss cheese! Park your brain at the door and just enjoy. So it's not GWTW. That's okay-we already have one of those. Highly recommended.
