Trivia

When Elaine brings Duff the basket of cheese, there's some discussion of the origin of Gruyere cheese. Duff is correct, Gruyere is from the Gruyeres district in Switzerland, not from France. See more »

Goofs

After Duff makes an offer on the house, he slams down the telephone handset so hard that we hear it "ping". The phone is a digital model and would not have a bell inside. See more »

Quotes

Duff: Maybe we can use slingshots to rob the place.
John: A slingshot is not a real weapon, Duff.
Duff: Oh, yeah? Well maybe you'd like to define the word "weapon' for me while this plastic doll smashes into your temple at 180 miles per hour.

User Reviews

a silly comedy that works
4 September 2003 | by (TN) – See all my reviews

Call me crazy, but I liked this movie. It had its moments. I especially liked Elaine's dad; his character was the funniest. The part where John and Mr. Warner end up in drag at the judge's house was so funny. Then the end was great when John writes I have the picture, and the judge lets him off. And all the silly ideas John and Duff come up with to get the money were quite entertaining. I liked the fact that for once, Tom Green didn't play a gross out character.

FINAL VERDICT: This is a comedy worth seeing. It's only about 80 minutes long, but that's about right for a Tom Green movie.
