The Farrelly Brothers disowned the film after Harvey Weinstein insisted on numerous changes from the source material and re-cut the film in order to make it closer to their There's Something About Mary rather than the coming-of-age tale the original story was. The final film was a flop with critics and audiences and has been more or less forgotten. See more »
Movie spans in '74-'75, and early they show a joint being rolled on a copy of Hunter S. Thompson's "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas", with the tagline at the bottom (of the book) "From the author of the Great Shark Hunt", which was published in '79. See more »

I overlooked this movie when it was in theatres and just saw it on video. I was very impressed. It wasn't the dumb gross out movie the Farrely's are known for. It had some laugh out loud moments, and some surprising tender moments as well. Alec Baldwin was hysterical as Old Man Dunphy and the supporting cast of friends like Drugs & The Wire were funny as well. This movie is a lot better than you'd probably think. It certainly surpassed my expectations.
