Goofs

In the restaurant, Mr. Ellis gives Sarah a choker necklace. It's extremely tight-fitting, and this is explicitly commented upon. Later in the same scene, the necklace is clearly much longer, and Sarah easily removes it by lifting it over her head. See more »

Martin Short is Funny..........Isn't He?
20 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Am I one of only a handful of people who think Martin Short is hysterical? The only way a goofy plot like the one in this film could possibly work is if the lead actor was a true genius of comedy, a man among Canadians, a charming elf-like creature I like to call Martin Shortman. Martin Short relies heavily on facial movement and voice tonal changes to make his character Clifford funny. Through the annoyance of his dear Uncle Martin surely we all can get along and laugh together as a family of opinionated movie viewers just looking for a good time, a few chuckles now and then to make us forget that we have low paying jobs and live in shoddily built ranch-style homes overlooking well built but poorly placed sewage treatment plants. Bottom line is that if you really like Martin Short then you will think this movie is hilarious, if you don't then don't waste your time because you can't have it back.
