Kevin Franklin is a con man whose mouth is bigger than him, but it doesn't help him much when he's in with the mob for $50,000. Trying to avoid a gambling addict boss, and his two stupid henchmen, Kevin poses as a childhood friend to Gary Young, a workaholic father whose own life is in turmoil in an affluent Pennsylvania suburb. Written by
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.

The mobsters' Lincoln Town Car changes at one point during an aerial shot in the movie. During the shot, you see the rear end belongs to a 1981-1984 model Town Car, while during the rest of the movie the rear end belongs to a 1987-1988 model. See more »
[Kevin's shipment of baseball cards come in]
The entire 1994 baseball season, know what I'm saying? I got Ken Griffey Jr. here, Barry Bonds, Jose Canseco. People spend big money for baseball cards, but if they get hurt, it's even worth more money! Say one of them's going to the car after the game, gets hit - pow! I don't wanna see it happen, but if it does, I'm getting paid!

Sinbad and Phil Hartman sing several food-themed parodies over the credits with music and a chorus in the background. Phil Hartman uses the name "Sinbad" during these songs instead of either of the character's names from the movie. See more »
For what this movie was it was perfect. I first watched this when I was an ignorant kid but I can still appreciate it now that I'm an ignorant college student. Phil Hartman could not have been better but that should not be surprising if you're one of the many out there that deems him a genius like myself. Sinbad did his part and contributed to many laughs. The story is what you'd expect with an underachiever from the hood hooking up with some white surburbians. Sinbad's job is to bring us into the lilly white community of Zwickley and deconstruct the Puritan values and customs that everyone has become accustomed to. Sinbad makes white people let loose by passing around a wine bottle and dance to "Brick House." Sounds great doesn't it? But if you're looking for mind perplexing subject matter you're in the wrong place to begin with. Sit back, laugh, and enjoy a very underrated '90's comedy. One of the few leading role works by the late Phil Hartman.
