Trivia

Jeff Celentano was considered to direct this film after the festival success of his directorial debut, Under the Hula Moon (1995). However, based on that movie's ending, Disney decided his take on the film might be "too dark" for a family comedy. Jeff would later be considered to direct another Paul Walker movie, 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003). See more »

Great sunday hangover viewing.
30 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

As another reviewer said; "I recommend it for Paul Walker fans and immature people." Being both these things I was wetting myself laughing at a fair few points of the film. Mainly because I find farts very very funny indeed. I had a rip-roaring hangover this afternoon and decided to put on a film that was so simple it required no thinking whatsoever to watch. This was the ideal thing. It's cringe worthy and very tacky at times but that doesn't mean it's absolute rubbish. Worth a watch if you're into tacky comedies that rely heavily on bodily function jokes or if you want to see Paul Walker in a wetsuit. I'd like him to put a Deedle in my haystack.......
