Trivia The basic plot as well as many of the name of the brewing company are references to William Shakespeare's "Hamlet". The castle in "Hamlet" was Elsinore. The heir to Elsinore's father was murdered by her uncle, who then comes to her as a ghost. In Hamlet, the uncle's name was Claudius, and in the movie he is named Claude. See more »
Goofs At the end of the court room scene, the picture behind the judge, which was obviously supposed to fall off the wall as he bangs his gavel, falls a couple of seconds too early. See more »

Crazy Credits In the original theatrical release, instead of the usual roaring lion in MGM's studio logo, the lion is drunk and belches. Then the camera pans to the side to reveal that the McKenzie Brothers (the main characters in this movie) are playing with the lion's tail. When the lion gets angry, they leave to another room to introduce the movie. See more »
Quotes Doug McKenzie: I am your father, Luke. Give in to the dark side of the force, you knob.
Bob McKenzie: He saw Jedi 17 times, eh.
