The name of Jerry Baskin (Nick Nolte)'s mutt was "Kerouac" whilst the name of the Whiteman's black-and-white dog was "Matisse". The latter was portrayed by Mike the Dog who even got seventh billing in the credits. Publicity for this picture reported that it was the debut feature film performance of Mike the Dog. The film is also Mike the Dog's only ever appearance in a cinema movie. See more »
When the alarm is set off in the beginning of the movie, Max Whiteman jumps out of his bed and grabs his video camera. As he leaps from the bed it is apparent that he is wearing a man's night gown. He runs directly onto the front driveway and appears in long-john underwear. See more »
The credits open on scenes showing sites featured in Beverly Hills The end credits scroll on the alleyway outside the Whiteman's home, during which a bum pushing a trolley walks by, pauses to check on the Whiteman's dumpster, then continues on his way. See more »
Quite fabulous, actually, and very well done how one man unintentionally changes the lives of so many people. It truly is laugh-out-loud hilarious at times. A very good cast does a wonderful job in creating a feel-good comedy classic! The dog, Matisse, steals the show, though!
