Did You Know?
Michael, Buster, GOB and their attorney played by Henry Winkler
are on the dock attempting to retrieve Buster's hand from the seal that had bit it off. Mistakenly it was a shark which was captured and the scene ends with Winkler "jumping the shark", a phrase which is thought to have originated from a 1977 episode of the Happy Days
when the character Arthur "Fonzie" Fonzarelli, played by Winkler, jumped over a shark while water skiing. See more
When Buster is zip lining across the hotel, the end of the zip line can be seen at the bottom of the balcony, much lower than the window. After the hook is let go by Buster, it crashes through the middle of the window, even though the end of the line would be much too low to crash through the middle of the window. See more

Motherboy was also the name of a heavy metal band that used to rock pretty hard during the '70s. We are legally obligated to make this distinction.
