Trivia

Burt Reynolds was not originally actually sought by the production for the part of politician Dave Dilbeck. Reynolds wanted the part badly and so contacted Castle Rock studio head Rob Reiner personally and went to Miami, Florida to audition. He took a pay cut considerably lower than to what he had received during the heyday of his career. See more »

Misunderstood Black Comedy
30 July 2003 | by (Seattle, Washington, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is just like Carl Hiassen's novels (upon which it was based) -- a little off, a little crude and incredibly funny. The dark humor mixed with the believably bizarre characters makes this a wonderfully funny time. I almost died laughing... especially Burt Reynolds, who steals every one of his scenes. Not for everyone, but this film is hilarious if you take the time to enjoy it.
