Charles Grodin and Debi Mazar both have cameos in this movie: Grodin's car is commandeered by Tony at the end of the movie and Mazar is Tony's date when Charlie and Harriet go on a double date. Both Grodin and Mazar also starred in Beethoven's 2nd (1993) the same year as this movie. 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.

An alternate take is used for the USA TV version: When Phil Hartman's character is telling his story in the jail, he refers to the prisoner's victim as a "girlfriend" instead of the more profane "bitch" used in all other versions. 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.
