Trivia

In order for the garbage truck to lift and drive "Ben Stiller's 1956 Porsche", the special FX crew had to pre-build an undercarriage frame that was mounted on the Porsche and welded onto the truck's forks, to make sure the Porsche didn't "fall off" during shooting. See more »

Never Quites Hits the Mark
10 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Two garbage truck drivers in Hollywood become celebrities overnight after they find Cuba Gooding Jr.'s Best Supporting Actor Oscar for "Jerry Maguire" and suddenly their lives go topsy-turvy.

I loved how this was such a novel concept, and made me wonder: who really collects celebrity trash? Whoever is in that position could easily use it to their advantage. Now, they are not going to find an Oscar, most likely, but they might be aware that Billy Baldwin eats a lot more fish sticks than the average person.

Unfortunately in this case, the film never fully takes off. There are some good moments and a few key cameos, but the overall arc is a low one. I feel like there could have been a little bit more going on, a bit more zaniness. Oh well. At least we got Michael Madsen.
