Trivia

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 »

Goofs

After Pat gets fired from looking into people's mail, he walks into the store to get a few personal items. When he's talking to Tippy about getting the personal items, the eye dropper and the deodorant stick disappear and reappear between shots. Tippy puts the eye dropper and the deodorant stick inside the bag three times. The bag clearly contains three of everything, except the napkins. See more »

Crazy Credits

During the closing credits, audio of Kathy Griffin and Kyle is heard. Kathy is now back on her radio show and one of her callers turns out to be Kyle, whose obsession with Pat has now caused him to become a cross-dresser. See more »

Alternate Versions

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 »

ITS PAThetic
3 September 2002 | by Boyo-2See all my reviews

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.
