Towards the beginning of the movie, Father Clifford is standing in front of a brick wall when Roger jumps from a window and lands on Clifford. Clifford goes down, but the camera does not move. Right before Clifford and Roger get up, the shadows on the brick wall instantly shift, revealing that scene was edited together from multiple takes. See more »
Uncle Martin, save me!... Uncle Martin?
I'm thinking it over!
Please?, I'm scared!
Well I'm scared about what might happen if I save you. You know, I should do mankind a tremendous favor and let that dinosaur eat you. I mean, who knows what horrors you might unleash, or what if you got your hands on some plutonium?
I just made the bestest nuclear bomb in the whole wide world.

This movie is a little weird. It's very unusual to see a grown man playing a 10 year old boy. But it was funny. Martin Short is hilarious as a psycho 10 year old boy! Charles Grodin is funny as Hell as the psycho 10 year old's uncle who tries to keep his nephew under control! I haven't seen a lot of Martin Short movies but judging by this performance, he must be a very funny comedian. I like how Clifford(Short) always calls Sarah Davis(Mary Steenburgen) 'Miss Sarah Davis'. It's just funny the way he says it. Anyway, I recommend this movie to everyone. It's hilarious and fun for the whole family.
