[first lines]
Charlie Mackenzie: Excuse me, miss? There seems to be a mistake. I believe I ordered the *large* cappuccino. *Hello!* Look at the size of this thing.
Tony Giardino: It's practically a bowl.
Charlie Mackenzie: It's like Campbell's Cup-O'-ccino!
Charlie Mackenzie: [laughing at his Campbell's joke and wiping his tears] Oh, my sides. Please. Aidez-moi.

Alternate Versions

In the original version, Mike Myers is wearing a short green towel (covering from waist to mid-thigh) that falls of when he hugs Ralph, exposing his bum. In the TV version, the shot where the towel drops uses an alternate take shot specifically for TV and Airline release. In all other shots the towel remains short. See more »

Did you marry Mrs X?
6 July 2000 | by MovieKing-4See all my reviews

Mike Myers gives Waynes World a rest and delivers what I think is a better movie.... well better than Waynes World 2 anyway. It is a truly great movie with Mike playing a duel role, firstly as Charlie MacKenzie a young guy who is scared of commitment to women, then his dad Stuart MacKenzie a very funny Scotsman who could take the lead role in X Files with his ideas on Conspiracy. Nancy Travis stars as a butcher... Harriet, who ends up with Charlie..... A great movie that is very funny in the pre Austin Powers age, a 7 out of 10.
