Chris Farley uses the same football play with the kids at the youth center - "32 belly option" - as he did when he and 'Rob Lowe (I)' went cow-tipping in Tommy Boy (1995). See more »
When Mike is being dragged behind a car by his tie in the grocery store parking lot, the harness that he's wearing is visible in close ups. See more »
Man! This place is trashed!
Check this out! This whole fridge is held up here just by this plug!
[unplugs the fridge, letting it slide toward Mike, pinning him against the wall]
I'm just dandy! I got a bowl of chocolate pudding in my underpants!
We didn't have any pudding in there, buddy.

Reviews of this film were less than favourable but since I enjoyed the Farley/Spade partnership so much in Tommy Boy I thought I would check this one out as well.
Farley does alot of falling over and generally self abuse in this one, for instance when he tumbles down a mountain side and then gets up and says "What was that all about?".
The bit where the bunk bed collapses on top of Spade during the hail storm and the "Power to the People" speech at the rock concert are hilarious.
Most viewed this film as inane and childish - one reviewer I distinctly remember said that he would rather have Des O'Connor sing him the phone book than watch this again - but I found myself laughing many times.
