At the time, Michaels had just finished contentious battles with the studio over the script for Wayne's World 2 (1993), and the animosity between the two camps spilled over into Chris Farley's contract with Paramount. Although Farley's agent lined up possible roles in The Cable Guy (1996) (for which he was offered $3 million) and Kingpin, the studio wanted another buddy comedy with Farley and David Spade.

Very well done. I enjoyed this movie a lot. Some parts could have been done better but overall I enjoyed it and enjoy watching it anytime I can. Must see for all of those that can just lay back and have fun.
