Goofs

When Gary was in Chang's home, Chang asked his grandpa in Mandarin Chinese with thick US accent, and his grandpa answered it in Vietnamese. So clearly, those two don't speak the same language. See more »

Has It's Moments
2 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

All I can say is this movie has it's moments. It kinda reminds me of Me Myself and Irene. The main character is an out of this world figure that stands out in a crowd big time. Most of the humor is very vulgar. But funny non the less. This movie is good to kill time to say the least. Not recommended for younger audiences though. The scene with the young girl talking to her dad is funny as hell. And so is the scene involving the strap on!.I think it's old Farelly brothers humor. Randy Quaid is funny as always here. When you see it, make sure you have plenty of cold beer. I'm not sure what the director has done previously, but I think he will do good things.
