Putting the blame on him, they put up wanted signs for Grover. Devito can be seen ripping them off telephone polls, which in fact, his character Ralph in Romancing The Stone does the same thing when in the police station in Mexico. See more »

When i noticed this movie had not yet even been reviewed by its release date, I knew it was going to flop. I decided to see it anyways on its first showing at the local theatre with my friend. There was a total of 4 people (including us) in the theatre. Oh geez, I thought. A fan of SNL and Norm MacDonald, I figured it can't be THAT bad. Well, I'll just say as soon as the movie started, I was laughing. I never stopped laughing, honestly. It was one of the funniest movies I had seen in the theatres since The Whole Nine Yards. I could definately see that some of the immature humor would turn off some people, but if you like goofy, slapstick comedy, or are a fan of Saturday Night Live, you will probably find this movie entertaining. If not, so sue me.
