The satellite dish Chip falls into is pointing straight up. Satellite dishes track satellites in geosynchronous orbit, which must orbit at the equator. For the satellite dish to be pointing straight up, it must be on the equator. See more »
I remember this movie being polarizing when it came out but I've always loved it, the basketball scene is one of my favorite scenes and the movie still holds up. This is one of those movies where instead of the characters making jokes, the characters are the jokes. Jim Carrey really pulls the weight in this movie and Matthew Broderick could have honestly being played by anyone. Check this movie out if you are getting into early Jim Carrey.
