Grover Clever is the only one of the three guys who didn't stage either of the kidnappings. However according to the script, police saw him dump the body double for Willard. 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 Willard and Rusty are being shot at by Grover in the police car, he shoots bullet holes in the hood, then the holes go away and he shoots new ones in again in a different shot. See more »

hardly as rotten as I expected--in fact, not bad at all
9 June 2005 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Norm MacDonald works for a very rich and nasty lady (Elaine Stritch). After putting up with tons of abuse from her, he decided to get revenge by kidnapping her horrid dog and holding it hostage. His friend (Dave Chappelle) lends him a hand and soon are the subject of a nationwide manhunt! Will the guys get away with it or will they go to prison and become somebody's boy toys?

The reviews for this movie were SAVAGE. I've seen wars get better reviews! The attacks were strong and brutal. That's probably why I am so charitable in my review. It just didn't seem like a bad film to me. Great?! No way, but there were enough moments to keep my interest and merit a score of 6. Sometimes I wonder if I am crazy (a possibility) or the movie reviewers are just lemmings who follow each other's leads.

Elaine Stritch was incredibly mean and hateful, as her role demanded and there were some other supporting actors who I really liked as well, but the one who really stood out to me was Danny DeVito's incredibly weird and funny bit part as the president of the Jack Lord fan club (and a total psycho to boot).

By the way, if you liked this film, try watching another MacDonald film DIRTY WORK. It might be a tad funnier but both very rough comedies make you laugh--and isn't that enough sometimes?
