Trivia

Filmed entirely in San Diego, California using two ambulances from a defunct private ambulance company (Star Ambulance). The red "DIC" ambulance is painted with the scheme for Rural/Metro ambulances (San Diego City's contracted 911 service), while the blue "BALS" ambulance maintains the color scheme of Star Ambulance. Throughout the movie it can be seen that the interior door jambs of the red "DIC" ambulance are in fact the same blue color as the "BALS" unit. See more »

A little harsh...but still fun
8 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

I took my son to see this. He loved it. It was a bit much for me, but I'm glad he enjoyed himself. It was neat giving my son the history lessons on what other films led up to this one. For me, it felt very much like the 1980's comedies of which when I was closer to my son's age just loved. Titles that came to mind were Police Academy, Moving Violations, Stripes (Ox/John Candy being the Karl character, Rich being the Bill Murray character, the female love interest the nudity and raunchiness in general), Porky's, Revenge of the Nerds etc.

If it was up to me I'd probably give the movie a six, but for my son's sake I gave it an 8. Perhaps I'm out of the loop or just getting too old for the raunch factor. Either way it was a fun outing. A caution to other parents however strong language, nudity, gross out humor, and general distaste for decency.
