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 »

Quotes

Clifford: Uncle Martin, save me!... Uncle Martin?
Martin Daniels: I'm thinking it over!
Clifford: Please?, I'm scared!
Martin Daniels: 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?
Martin Daniels: [mocking Clifford] I just made the bestest nuclear bomb in the whole wide world.

The bestest movie ever!...OK, not really
27 November 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In this funny, but slightly crude film, Martin Short uses his young face and tricky camera angles, I think, to play the part of a ten year old boy. What is really funny is that he is obviously not a ten year old boy, yet he is perfectly capable of the role due to his bizarre sense of humour. This film showed on a television station that normally shows Disney B movies. Movies released in the 90's are not really my thing, but this one was really cute! There were a few offensive words and crude moments ( such as one reference to a "secret space" and other jokes about pedophiles ) but if these go in one ear and out the other, than it won't be a problem for you. Martin Short has the most hilarious face, capable of contorting to give a weird, childish look that creeps out even the on screen characters. The opening and closing shots reminded me of "Boy's Town" and gives us a chance to see Martin Short under layers of latex for his role as an elderly priest.

All in all, not a bad effort.
