This the last film Chris Farley & Spade star/appear in together. See more »
When Steve gets sprayed with the fire extinguisher he is wearing a pair of khakis and a sweater but when we see him a while later he is still sprayed but wearing blue jeans and a jacket. Later still, he is back to the original outfit. See more »

Quiet back there! I've taken enough guff from you for one day!

Raving psycho! Butchered 400 chickens and screwed a beagle. I'm taking him back to Nevada where he's wanted for banging horses!

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.
