In the film, Jackie Moon says that he had never vomited before, not even as a baby. In reality, Will Ferrell suffered from pyloric stenosis, a condition that causes frequent vomiting, as a baby. A scar on his upper right abdomen, from the surgery he had to treat this condition, appears in this and many other films. See more »
Henry Ford had nothing to do with Flint, Michigan. Flint is the birthplace of General Motors, founded as the Buick Motor Company in 1903, by William C. Durant and Joshia D. Dort, co-owners of the Flint-based Durant-Dort Carriage Company. Durant brought engine builder David Buick to Flint from Detroit. Buick was a huge success, and Durant used it as the basis for his "General Motors" corporation in 1910. Henry Ford's auto company was founded in Detroit around 1910; its headquarters are in Dearborn, Michigan. There has never been a Ford facility within 50 miles of Flint, Michigan. See more »
I really can't stand the site of Will Farrell, and I usually find him anything but funny. I hated Ron Burgundy and thought Elf was trite, but i have to say I pretty much laughed my way throughout this entire movie.
It was made as a comedy, which it excels at being, but it is also a really good period piece on the 70's (love the fro's). The story was also really good, a bit predictable but well done - I found myself caring about the characters and the out come of the story.
I was entertained throughout this entire movie, and i would add this movie amongst other American comedy classics such as Family Vacation, Uncle Buck or even Planes, Trains and Automobiles... all very different movies, but ones that made us laugh and kept us smiling.
