In the movie, Old Man Dunphy has blue eyes. Later on during a flashback scene, we are shown that Mrs. Dunphy had blue eyes as well. However, their kids - both Jackie and Timothy - have brown eyes. While unusual, there are well documented cases of this. See more »

Wonderfully crafted and understated movie from the kings of gross-out comedy. Poignant and hilarious this film is a beautiful departure from the Farrely Bro's typical fare. It follows the (mis) adventures of a 1970's era RI kid who runs afoul of the law and is sent to a stuffy boarding school. It sounds like a fairly redundant storyline but the emotional underpinnings and underlying angst of the young characters are subtly, yet powerfully displayed. 9/10.
