Brando reportedly attempted to break the ice with a magic trick, but an awkward joke at Gotti's expense forced Brando and company to leave. See more »
When Clark is talking to his mother on the phone about the Komodo Dragon, she leafs through an animal book, asks if it begins with a 'K', and reads off a few animal names in the 'K' section on the way to Komodo Dragon - one of which is Coatimundi which begins with 'C', not 'K'. See more »
A small, delightful film, which let's Brando playfully deconstruct his Vito Corleone. Full of laughs and surprises, it accomplishes its goal of being a small, funny coming of age story as admirably as Godfather accomplishes its grander goals. The coincidences build on each other as in a Pynchon novel. And the scattered references to the Curious George books turn out to have a funny payoff as well.
