Goofs

In "the book scene", when Bud is lining up in the hallway the camera cuts to Doyle and we can see he is standing with the coffee table lined up right next to him with no room to pass him. As Bud hits him, the camera changes to a view of him from behind, and we can see Bud has plenty of room to get past Doyle as the coffee table has moved. See more »

Check out the "Blue Velvet" spoof!!
17 May 2000 | by 80sChildSee all my reviews

Admittedly, the scene where Bud & Doyle inhale laughing gas ala Dennis Hopper in "Blue Velvet" is the funniest spoof I've ever seen in a movie!! All in all, this was a fun, feel good movie, and yes, Pauly Shore does get VERY annoying at times, but hey, this is all just for fun. Shakespeare it ain't, but if you're in the mood for a fun, feel-good movie to watch on a lazy weekend, check Bio-Dome out! It also delivers wonderful environmental awareness believe it or not.
