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 (1998) 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 »
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.
