Was originally set to be distributed by 20th Century Fox before Touchstone Pictures took over. In any case, it's one of the few SNL-based movies to not be released theatrically by Paramount Pictures. Ironically, Touchstone's parent company, The Walt Disney Company merged with 20th Century Fox, 25 years after this film's release. See more »

In most versions of the film, the Japanese spoken words in the sushi bar are subtitled, with a man stepping in front of the subtitles just as Pat's boss is revealing what he saw in the bathroom. In recent cable versions the scene is still there, but the subtitles are oddly absent. See more »
This is not worth dignifying with more than a few comments. Its virtually unwatchable but I made it..why, I don't know. Sometimes you want to see a disaster, there's no other explanation.
I enjoyed the skit on SNL. Pat seemed evasive, intentionally, as her sex-as-a-question mark is the whole point of the comedy to begin with. She couldn't directly answer a question that would allude because without that, you don't have anything.
But in the movie, Pat is not only evasive, but self-centered, rude and gets away with it!
So while you are watching a one-dimensional character act like a duchess, ask yourself if its ever gotten as bad as this. 1/10.
