Before appearing in this film, Robin Williams and Billy Crystal were already a well-known comedy duo, thanks to their work in Comic Relief. The original French film this is based on, The ComDads (1983) also features a well-known comedy team: Pierre Richard and Gérard Depardieu. Just the previous year, Williams and Crystal had appeared (though they shared no scenes) in Hamlet (1996), which also featured Depardieu. See more »
Characters are shown supposedly leaving San Francisco for Tiburon, driving on the upper deck of the Bay Bridge - which only leads towards San Francisco. Additionally, the logical path to take to Tiburon would involve the Golden Gate, not the Bay Bridge. See more »
I wrote this musical called "Hello, Doctor, it's Still Swollen." It had a great opening, went like this: "Hello Mr. Colon, my prostate's feelin' swollen. I think that things are flowin' not so well."

Breakfast! "I'm feelin' kinda heinous cause there's something in my..."

Very flat and predictable story. Robin and Crystal do make an ideal on-screen duo. Too bad they chose this script to do it. They can't save this mess. There are some very funny parts, but it's overshadowed by a poor story. It seems like those two and Julia Dreyfuss are the only ones making an effort. Charlie Hofheimer was very annoying and the rest of the characters looked liked they'd rather be in another film.
A supposed big laugh was intended when Bruce Greenwood's character stepped into a Port-o-san, a truck backs into it, and it falls over into a ditch, implying that the interior is now flooded with human excrement, with him stuck inside. I have no aversion to gross-out toilet humor, but that is just not funny. From there the movie goes from going downhill (no pun intended) to a flat-out nosedive. I don't think I even lasted to the end.
I can only hope that these two immensely talented actors will try to work another film together, but please choose something a little less insulting. Normally this would score a four, but Crystal and Williams bump it up to a 5/10.
