Trivia

In the beginning of the movie, there are plenty of shots of the orange couch in Gordan's apartment. Later throughout the movie, several cushions can be seen wrapped in duct tape, this is due to the dog playing Agent 11 having torn up the cushions while the camera was off according to commentary.

This Is Fun For Adults, Too!
3 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a very pleasant surprise; a very good comedy filled with a lot of laughs and - more surprise - not much raunch and profanity. Wow, that's unusual for today. Some people say this was strictly made for kids. Well, I am hardly a kid and I loved it.

All the characters in here are just that: characters from goofy David Arquette's "Gordon"- to the cute kid, Angus T. Jones ("James" - to big Michael Clarke Duncan ("Murdoch") - to pretty Leslie Bibb ("Stephanie")

  • to Joe Viterelli ("Gino") - to Anthony Anderson ("Bennie") - to Paul


Sorvino ("Sonny Talia"). Yeah, the last guy is the only one with a last name. I especially liked Viterelli and Duncan.

The film gets too silly in one spot - at the store, where the slapstick goes on way too long, but otherwise this is a funny movie. As the cliché goes, fun for all ages, but let me add.....not just the kids.
