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 »
In the scene in the hockey rink, the markings on the ice are from the 1990s. The most noticeable is the blue circular goalie crease. In 1974, the goalie crease was rectangular and white. See more »
Maybe some reviewers here have been put off by the fact that it's a mingling of different genres (romance/comedy). But I think the movie is vastly entertaining and satisfying. There's more substance to this movie than there is to others of a similar vein -- "Detroit Rock City" or "Almost Famous" or "Dazed and Confused." You're not supposed to cry and you're not supposed to split your sides laughing, but you are supposed to enjoy it, and that I did. Plus, Alec Baldwin is truly excellent in his role as a gruff, blue-collar dad.
