Trivia

In the scene after Doug and Steve are dumped, as they are driving on the highway, the song in the background was originally the somber "No Surprises" by Radiohead. This cut of the film was presented at the test screening in Westbury, New York about six months prior to the film's release. See more »

Goofs

When Dooey had Doug and Steve kicked out of Zadir's office, we see him following the guards down the hall. He jumps from halfway down the hall, back to Zadir's door to tell Zadir that it was just a couple trespassers. See more »

one of my top 10 comedies of all time
23 September 2005 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

When this movie hit the screens in the summer of 1998 (or was it 99 in Turkey - anyways), no one knew what it was in Turkey and a very few people went and saw it, I was one of the more fortunate ones to have done so, and i did this twice!!

Yes, i laughed my head off.. Once with my best pal, and the next day with my brother.

It is one of those movies which keeps that stupid smile on your face all through the movie. The Butabi brothers and their relationships with the whole world and their fascination for clubs, women and EMILIOOOO! is a must see for everyone who likes a good laugh.

I can't get the scene where the brothers are loading the flowers into the van. Some really funny stuff.

I bought this on video and have watched it dozens of times and it never gets old. Definitely recommend it...
