The McDonald's that Kevin Franklin is seen visiting in Sewickley was an empty storefront. The small town of Sewickley, in which most of this movie was filmed, does not have a McDonald's, so they built a complete functional McDonalds that was open for business during the shoot and then was closed and dismantled.

What a great movie this is. Humorous, well acted, dramatic, and well written.
A Pittsburgh get rich-quick man, Kevin Franklin (Sinbad) is in big trouble! He borrowed money from the bad guys, and now they want it back, or Franklin is history! In attempt to skip town at the airport, Franklin runs into Gary Young (poor old Phil Hartman) who is waiting for his old friend Derek Bond who he hasn't seen in 25 years. Franklin becomes Bond, and lives with Gary for a few days. What an adventure he has, not knowing who Derek Bond is, and trying to be him! A lot of excitement and humor happens now! Kevin learns a lot, but also teaches Gary's family things they needed to help them from falling apart. Kevin really improves the Youngs, and they improve him. Now if only the bad guys weren't still after Franklin. Can Kevin get the Youngs to help him with the bad guys, and will they all make it?!
If you like Sinbad and poor old Phil Hartman, check this movie out. It's also great for you if you like adventures and comedies. On a scale of 1-10, I give this movie a nine (9), and a letter grade of A! Check it out for yourself. You'll have a ball, and you might even learn some important stuff!
