Incorrectly regarded as an error: The first time Roger and Dr. P are in the museum, there are two elephants in the background. The next time there appears to be only one in the final shot. This is caused by the shift in camera angle. In fact, the head of the elephant on the left is hidden by the stuffed lion. The body of the elephant is still seen, but looks like a large boulder.

I've seen countless teeny bopper comedies the past couple of years, and I can honestly say, this wasn't one of them.
This was a good, straight forward comedy, with some hilarious moments and a lovable character. The story was also interesting, even though it was very predictable from the beginning (I don't know many people who watch comedies for a complex, deep, mysterious story line anyways)
My favorite thing about the movie is all the actors fit in perfectly with the characters they are playing. Especially the main character, who develops through the movie from a weak, shy, kind hearted guy, to somebody who is still kind at heart, but not afraid to defend himself and fight for what he wants.
This isn't the best comedy ever, but its good. And I would recommend it to anybody looking for a good laugh out loud movie with lovable characters.
