In the German version, Adam Sandler is not dubbed by Dietmar Wunder as usual. Instead, the German Disney subsidiary used comedian Matthias Knop to perform the dubbing. At the time, Knop was successful with his character "Super-Ritchie" (a kind of extremely dumb-minded version of Superman) and he performed the dubbing in the same manner of speech as his "Super-Ritchie" character. The film was widely panned by critics and audiences alike and the dubbing is regarded as one of the worst in history. See more »
On the final play of the game, Bobby's team snaps the ball at midfield where he recovered the onside kick. The penalty for the late hit on Bobby have not been marked off. The announcers even mention that the Mud Dogs will not be kicking a field goal for the tie, but play to win. A field goal without the yardage from the penalty would have been in excess of 60 yards.

for some reason this is one of my favorite movies. the timing is great. i've seen some movies that were potentially funnier but the editing/timing was off. but here the humor is only magnified. occasional tired spots do exist, but they only help to set up some hilarious physical comedy and gleefully goofy dialog. and Sandler's character occasionally makes me tear up with such a weird vulnerability (like his "lunchlady land" song). Kathy Bates does a great job playing his mother, and Fairuza Balk's Becky Ballencort is sinfully sexy. best of all is Henry Winkler's Coach Kline, though i can't tell if its really his character or just the contrast of his character to the Fonz character that I grew up with. Regardless, this movie cracks me up.
