Did You Know?


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 »


In the beginning when the boys are at the club, Doug has a necklace on in one shot, it disappears in the next, then it is back on his neck in a later shot. 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 :)
