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 »

17 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you think this movie sucks, well, it's really your opinion. But my opinion is that it's one of the funniest movies ever made. For those who disagree with me, it all depends on your taste. This movie is more of a weird/cheap humor kind of thing, and that's what a lot of people like. But a lot of people also like smart humor, in which this movie doesn't offer (that much). So this movie (and all other Saturday Night Live movies) are meant to be weird. It's funny to see how some people could act in real life. So people who's of weird and cheap humor, this movie is great! But for those of you smart alecs out there who like smart movies, this one (or any other Saturday Night Live) movie really should'nt be your pick 10/10
