When Hunt becomes suddenly disgusted with Edwards after peering through his telescope and discovering a naked Fontenot, Edwards realizes the mistake and turns the telescope to his left. The camera, with a point-of-view shot through the telescope, however, pans to the right to reveal a naked Shaquinna. See more »
[Picks up Bidwell's ear from the dirt]
Look at me. I'm going to make an experiment.
[Starts talking into the ear]
Hello, Bidwell? Can you hear me?
I can hear you, Pratt.
Well, of course, it works. He's standing right... Let's get some sleep.

A scene featuring Edwards' sweetheart, played by Parker Posey, was cut, as was the film's original ending. The re-shot ending did not include Bokeem Woodbine, resulting in his character Jonah disappearing after the fight against the conquistadors. See more »
For a comedy that got trashed in reviews and rediculed by movie-goers, I find this movie to be incredibly funny. The first time I saw the movie was in the theater at which time I laughed at the "obvious" laugh-parts, but it was not until I had seen it another two or three times before I picked up on the absolutely hysterical dialogue, terriffic comedy styles of the various supporting characters, and the sheer brilliance and irony the script presents. If you know anything about history, this movie becomes instantly funny. If you are a fan of almost Simpsons-style "random" humor, this film is instantly funny. Never be turned off by the first glance of this film. If you dismiss it as "poor comedy" you will be missing out.
