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 »

When Patrick Ewing throws Darryl onto the court, Patrick Ewings jacket keeps disappearing and reappearing. See more »

what ever happened to humour in this world
11 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I don't believe the poor rating that this film has been given. This is one of the funniest films I have seen in a long time. If people watched it with an open mind and stopped trying to serious movie critics and analyse every film they see, they would realise that it is great fun and entertaining. I have recommended this film to lots of my mates and they all thought it was side-splittingly funny. Everybody out there who gave it a crap rating should watch it again, as I pity them for their lack of humour and understanding of a good comedy. I gave this film a ten and I think it was worth every point. Anybody else agree-let me know.Vote and lets get this movie up from the paltry score of 5.4(what an insult)ENOUGH SAID. WAYANS BROTHERS ROCK.
