Trivia

A picture, widely distributed on the Internet, features the name of this movie sandwiched between Erin Brockovich (2000) and My Dog Skip (2000) on a marquee, thus spelling out the phrase "Erin Brockovich Screwed My Dog Skip".
The main characters' names are *almost* the names of U.S. presidents: Willard (not Millard) Fillmore; Rusty P. (not Rutherford B.) Hayes; and Grover Cleaver (not Cleveland).

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.
