Trivia

Nedra Volz was 76 years old at the time of filming. She shot many of her tricky scenes, including sliding and falling to the floor from sitting on a man's lap, and being lifted through the window onto the floor of the bathroom, without the use of a stunt double. See more »

Goofs

During the test drive, Scott Greeber crashes through the water tower, water pours all over the vehicle. However, when Halik goes to the window (which is just after water has poured all over the car) and knocks on the window, the car is completely dry. See more »

Lame, moronic, stupid - and pleasant.
12 January 2003 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

Some of the supporting players get their laughs (the almost-blind old lady and the gore fan stand out). But John Murray is unfunny, unfunny, unfunny and unfunny. You WON'T wonder why he never got a starring vehicle again. As for the level of the humor, well, if the first exchange doesn't clue you in ("I got a promotion" - "Great, and I got my period"), then the second one surely will ("My doctor says I'm a hypochondriac. How can I be a hypochondriac when I'm sick all the time?"). Then again, what did you expect from the director of "Bachelor Party"? (*1/2)
