Saul Rubinek was really hit in the nose with a bat during the scene where he falls down the stairs at the stadium. Since Rubinek was caught off guard, his reaction gave the scene a more realistic look. The director, not thinking twice, decided to leave it in the final cut. See more »
The list of coins shown in the printout during the opening credits are relatively common coins and as described with major flaws, would be a collection worth only a few thousand dollars-a far cry from the $1.5 million used in the storyline. The $20 gold piece shown in closeup during the credits is far from an un-circulted example, so it is a coin worth little more than the price of an ounce of gold. Also, if they removed the coins from their new PCGS holders and sold them "raw", whatever their value, they would be worth substantially less than as "certified" in the their holders. See more »

A great family film. I loved Mac's hair, I want it so much. It's about this 11-year old boy, Timmy Gleason (Mac Culkin) who sees his dad, Ray (Ted Danson) after years and years. All his dad cares about is getting some coins with his gawky friends Bobby (Saul Rubinek) and Carl (Gailard Sartain). Then after getting ignored, Timmy hides the coins somewhere and the only way they can get them back is if they do whatever he wants them to do with him. Then his dad meets a detective named Theresa Walsh (Glenne Headly) after Timmy comments on her scarf and then Ray falls in love with her. I loved the part when Timmy held up a bra and said 'Is this one of yours? Ooooooohhhh-la-la'. So rent it, watch it, laugh, and if you love it, own it. XD
