Goofs

On their way to their father's "fake plant shop", the Butabi brothers pass the lamp shop on their left. This shop is supposedly right next to their father's store (to the left), yet they keep walking for a few more minutes. Then we see them walk into their father's store coming from the right, when they should've walked in from the other direction. See more »

THIS MOVIE IS GREAAAAAAAAAT! i guarantee you'll be laughing throughout the movie. I'v read some reviews about this movie and i can't help but wonder why people say its horrible? Maybe your not the type who enjoy a good comedy once in a while. The two brothers are absolutely hysterical. They just keep the laughs coming. AND, what about the music? The music just happens to fit the movie so good that i think its a 'must see movie'. I'm a proud owner of this movie. When i'm in need of a good laugh this is the movie i watch. The story is wonderful, and the actors and actresses have done the greatest job on this movie. If i could i'd give it 100 OUT OF 100 :)
