Alcatraz Island Ranger Vicky states that many of the Park Rangers are former guards of Alcatraz, including himself. The prison closed on 21 March 1963, 30 years prior to this movie. This would have made Vicky a teenager at best when the prison closed, and too young to be employed as a guard. However, Ranger Vicky is most likely just telling a tall tale. See more »
Excuse me, miss? There seems to be a mistake. I believe I ordered the *large* cappuccino. *Hello!* Look at the size of this thing.
It's practically a bowl.
It's like Campbell's Cup-O'-ccino!

Oh, My sides. Please. Aidez-moi.

The UK cinema release, rated "12", was cut by 57 seconds, and removed the entire scene of Phil Hartman's guard telling his lengthy and graphic anecdote. All other releases are uncut and rated "15". See more »
The sad thing is that this is Mike Myers' lowest grossing film, which shows just what most people know. It's absolutely his best one though, with more likeable wit than the 2 Austin Powers pics and better characters and plot than the Waynes World movies.
Myers can only really do about 4 voices (Himself, Wayne, Austin and a Scotsman, which he's doing AGAIN in Shrek now) and he gets to show them all off here, which is actually great. He's great as his miserable dad, and the whole thing is just great fun, a really good film. Nancy Travis and Anthony LaPaglia as his insecure cop buddy support Myers well all the way through. Mike Myers and this movie just rule.
