Although spelled differently, the name "Berguita" (Kate's roommate) is a Spanish slang word for "little penis", this being referred several times by William Forsythe's character See more »
After Deuce and Kate leave the sushi restaurant, they walk to the end of the pier and he frees the fish that was going to be his meal. When he dumps the fish out of the bag into the "ocean," the splash is way too high and way too soon to have been the ocean below. The fish was dumped into a bucket or something held just below the camera line. Rob Schneider laughs visibly after this because the splash nearly hits him. See more »
I hate to admit this but I liked this movie, at least the first time I saw it. Yes, it's crass, crude, stupid and whatever but it's generally likable and a funny movie in many spots.
Rob Schneider does a fine job playing this amiable loser. Several scenes are just laugh-out-loud funny. The female interest, Arija Bareikis, is not someone I was familiar with but I liked her wholesome looks. William Forsythe plays the villain and, of course, he's over-the-top. The film had a nice soundtrack, a lot of familiar rock tunes.
As with most modern comedies, this gets carried and a little stupid at the end but, overall the film is good low-grade fun (and I mean "low grade!")
