Trivia

At one point Tim Allen responds to a logical statement by Kirstie Alley by calling her "Mr. Spock". While she never played Mr. Spock, she did play a Vulcan. She was Lt. Saavik in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) See more »

Goofs

When Brad and Caroline Sexton are fighting over the intercoms, the movie Brad turns on is It Happened One Night. However, the first line you hear is "Jumpin' catfish, you drive a guy crazy." The next line you hear is "You can leave. I can get along." These lines are actually out of order according to the film itself. See more »

My 2nd favorite movie about Amish life!
13 March 2001 | by (Monroeville,PA) – See all my reviews

This is a fine film about a pair of city folks trying to blend in with the Amish. Although my favorite movie about Amish life is Witness(1985) this movie does a good job showing you what life is like in Amish country. The plot was fine, the acting was great and funny, and the outline of the movie was creative. All in all: I give it a 10 out of 10, only because I love comedy movies.
