One of the film's US trailers is a spoof of the one for Rumble in the Bronx (1995), using the same music and inviting the audience to see the family "who do all their own stunts", which is a parody of the claim Jackie Chan does his own stunts. Both films were released by New Line Cinema in America. See more »

Don't listen to the critics. "The Stupids" is one of my favorite movies, and I've seen close to 800 in the last few years. It's full of scenes that deserve to be classic, like the "I'm My Own Grandpa" musical number, the Stupids' encounter with The Lloyd, and "to be a bush, you've got to think like a bush..." It's worth watching more than once, for sure. It's tragically underappreciated. The plot has Stanley Stupid investigating the conspiracy to steal his garbage and accidentally blunders into an illegal arms deal, while also tracking down the evil Mr. Sender.
