Goofs

Ferrets are usually as quiet as rabbits. When they get excited, they often do a "happy dance" and make sounds very similar to that heard in the movie. However, the "whining" sounds from the ferret behind the closed door are not normal. See more »

Along Came a Good Laugh
27 June 2004 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

The story's not overly engaging, but for some reason Along Came Polly is fun. Ben Stiller just has that knack of being able to embarass himself and we love him for it. You can't help but laugh. But the film is worth a look for Philip Seymour Hoffman, too, as the child actor still looking for recognition -- and work. The basketball court scene is great, but the best is his performance with a community theatre's production of Jesus Christ Superstar. If you've ever been in community theatre, or you've hung out with actors, you'll appreciate this.
