Goofs

When Pistachio and Jennifer go to the toy convention to find Bowman she says her name is Barbara, and Bowman invites her to his house. When Pistachio comes looking for her at the door (as the German Guy and the Snobby English Guy) he says he needs to talk to Jennifer Barker. Wouldn't he ask to see Barbara instead of Jennifer? Also Bowman knows her as Barbara and didn't say anything about him calling her Jennifer. See more »

watch the trailer
28 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sitting through this movie is completely worthless because everything that appears to be funny is in the trailer. I went expecting to see Dana Carvey go crazy with all kinds of disguises, but he is in costume for only the last 20 minutes or so, and basically every single one of the disguises is in the trailer. Don't waste your time, watch something else.

Elements of the plot that attempt to keep the movie going for the first hour are immature and crude. It isn't suitable for young kids and adults have nothing to laugh at. Nothing is clever or creative. The movie is a sad jumble of wasted film. Unfortunate the Carvey submitted himself to such a production.
