Trivia

During the scene where Matthew Lillard's character thinks that Darryl has suffered an overdose, his friends who follow him in the room suggest that he needs a shot of adrenaline to the heart. This is a reference to Pulp Fiction (1994), in which Mia Wallace (Uma Thurman) suffers an overdose and is given a shot of adrenaline to restart her heart. NOTE: This method would not actually work if someone suffered an overdose. See more »

Goofs

When Darryl is in the clothing store he is supposedly nude, but in the close shots you can see he is wearing black underpants. See more »

WOW!
1 June 2002 | by (Krasnoyarsk, Russia) – See all my reviews

People, I'd say that was the best 'light' comedy I've seen for some time now! I didn't laughing like for a very long time... It is simply the best movie for the last year in my life of that ganre. It's worth seeing. You can take my word on that. And, it has SO many great phrases and moments, that we keep changing them months after the movie.

Thank you very much!
