Trivia

Henry Gibson starred in The Blues Brothers (1980) in which the final scenes of the film had SWAT team members yelling "HUT HUT HUT" as they were moving into position. The same can be seen and heard with SWAT officers near the end of this movie, almost as if it's an indirect reference to the earlier movie. See more »

"If you were yogurt....?"
27 February 2005 | by prohibited-name-2275See all my reviews

This is a 50/50 movie, you either love it or you hate it. Funny lines are few and far between, but do exist. The rest of the film is just mindless humor that wasn't funny even for mindless humor. Great for Pauly Shore fans and for those who enjoy slapstick comedy. Otherwise the other 99.9% of the population will probably tire quickly of the lame jokes and one dimensional, almost cartoon like characters. You have to wonder why anyone thought it was a good idea to go ahead and make it. The movie ensnares the viewer by opening with a promising start. The movie quickly deteriorates from there. Stephen Baldwin only adds to the overall idiocy. As if one bad actor wasn't enough.
