When Donald shows his new "Assault Rifle" to his fiancé, he tells her it's "308 caliber with a... *snaps stock open* Folding stock". In fact, it's not.

I think it is an underrated movie and very funny. I thought Robin,Walter and Jerry were great I don't rate movies that are strictly comedy as high as others, but for comedies I think this is one of the better ones out there.

I just don't think Robin Williams or the rest of the crew get their just credit for this movie. Maybe people don't think anything with guns is funny, but I did
