Trivia

This is one of three family-friendly films released by Paramount Pictures that star Thomas Haden Church, after Over the Hedge (2006) and Charlotte's Web (2006). Incidentally, Church became famous playing Lowell Mather on the Paramount-produced TV series Wings (1990). See more »

Goofs

In the big meeting with D'Enzo, he states (referring to Johnny Whitefeather) "And your great-grandfather was one-half Navaho. So what would that make you? One-thirty-second?" This is factually wrong. If his great-grandfather was half Navaho, then he would be 1/16th Navaho (his grandfather would be 1/4 and his father would be 1/8th). Martin Sheen either read the line wrong and it should have been "great great-grandfather", or it was simply written wrong. See more »

Quotes

Tod: Mr. E, I talked to the lawyer guy upstairs and he confirmed my hunch, uh, about the whole stabbing of Mr. Whitefeather thing. It's a definite no can do from a legal standpoint.

Enjoyable and quite funny
1 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was pleasantly surprised with this funny flick. I was in the mood for a fun family film, and this delivered. If you don't expect an academy award winner, then you should find this movie very entertaining. Eddie Murphy really puts in a highly energized performance and so does Hayden Church. Watching these two duke it out in their financial meetings is pure comic gold. Best part has to be when Murphy goes through his stock pick notes that have been doodled on my his daughter - "this stock is gonna drop its pants because they have a poopy diaper...........". This movie makes me want to go find an imaginary person and become friends with them.

Awesome.
