Quotes

Coach Cannoli: Say, are you Coach Chester Lee?
Chester: That's right.
Coach Cannoli: I'm Coach Cannoli. There's a rumor that you, on your soccer team, dressed a boy as a girl.
Dave Mullen: Cannoli, that is patently ridiculous.
[turns to Chester]
Dave Mullen: I'm sorry, Chester.
Chester: [to Cannoli] I'm insulted. How can you stoop so low as to repeat a ridiculous rumor like that? How dare you.

Alternate Versions

When this movie is aired on network television, particulary the Disney Channel, TNT, and TBS, one line is shortened in the scene where Chester talks to the bartender. In the theatrical release, when the bartender asks what happened, Chester says "Well...I took her son...dressed him up as a girl, and talked him into playing with me". Then he is kicked out of the bar. In the TV version, he says "Well, I took her son, dressed him up as a girl.." Then we see him get kicked out. The reason for this cut is probably because it is too sexually suggestive. See more »

User Reviews

One of the best movies not available on DVD!
2 June 2004 | by jellyneckrSee all my reviews

I consider Rodney Dangerfield to be the funniest man who has ever lived. He's the best stand-up comedian of all time. He's great. Out of all his movies, I like this one the best. CADDYSHACK is a classic too, but I watched it recently and I realized Rodney Dangerfield is hardly in it at all. The more Rodney Dangerfield, the better. LADYBUGS proves that. This movie is all about Rodney. If you are a fan of all of Rodney Dangerfield's one liners, this movie is for you. He keeps them coming throughout the whole hour and a half. In addition to Rodney's one liners, the movie also contains some great visual gags (the changing room scene is hilarious). LADYBUGS is easily one of the best movies not available on DVD.
