Trivia

In a scene in the Dominican Republic, a dog appears next to Balbuena and Fellito. This was a trained dog that was supposed to host the soul of Balbuena's dead wife (and act and show emotions accordingly). But the day of the filming, the dog didn't feel like acting and just lay down. The efforts to make the dog perform were useless, so its role had to be left out of the script. See more »

A different Funny Movie
5 February 1999 | by (Raleigh, NC) – See all my reviews

This is a well made comedy with funny, but not exaggerated, jokes. The downside is the introduced love-affair which is not very convincing. Combines reality and comedy very well.
