Trivia

The filmmakers originally wanted to secure a PG-13 rating for the movie. See more »

Goofs

In the beginning sequence, the ice cream truck reads (on the back doors): "Watch Out For Children." Later in the movie, we see that Gregory has painted over the word "For" so that it now says: "Watch Out Children." But, at times, the word "FOR" is mysteriously back on the van, sometimes from one shot to the next. See more »

The best bad movie I've ever seen
11 December 2002 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

Technically speaking, this movie sucks...lol. However, it's also hilarious. Whether or not it's intentionally funny I don't know. Horrible in every aspect, it also is the only movie I know of that has 1) a fat kid being played by a slim actor in a (very obvious) fat suit, 2) an attractive 30-something actress playing a character who's supposed to be in her late 60's, and 3) the most compliments for plastic yard daisies ever. Don't take this film seriously, just watch it for laughs....a great party movie.
