At one point, Evil Roy Slade considers changing his name. He runs through three possibilities, but they all begin with the word "Evil". The third one, "Evil Lee Rich", is an inside joke: writer/producer Garry Marshall co-produced a sitcom called Hey, Landlord (1966) with Lee Rich. See more »
When Evil Roy Slade realizes he has the short cowboy's hat on, he grabs the hat and starts to take it off. Then when the short cowboy hands Evil Roy the correct hat, Evil Roy still has the short cowboy's hat on. See more »
One of the 10 Funniest and Cleverest Comedies Ever!
This movies was a masterpiece and a delight. Dick Shawn was stupendously funny, and the rest of the cast, perfectly cast. The movie was well directed ALWAYS kept you laughing and never let up. In this viewers opinion it is one of the 10 funniest and cleverest comedies of all times. I gave it a 10 and so did 297 people out of a possible 419 voters here on the data base. Will someone explain to me how you can have over half the votes a 10, have the Arithmetic mean = 9.1. The Median of 10.0 and still our beloved IMDb gives this movie a weighted average vote of 6.3? Come on I've heard of "weighted" but is the butchers hand on the scale here? Is it that those folks intellectual capacity just couldn't bare to see this film in the top ten of the top 100 movies? Hmmmmmm? Well guess what? The Direction, The Acting, The Script, and just the general "clevertude" (is there such a word?) Should put this film just about in the top 10 percent of films....Come on Fellas....be fair. At least level this out to 8.5 I can buy that a whole lot "weightedly" than 6.3 Just one viewers opinion.
