Trivia

Larry David has expressed regrets over directing the film. References of the film were made on "Curb Your Enthusiasm" where his character had a poster of the film in his office, but according to the season one commentary, David took the poster down because he was sick of looking at it, and another one featured friends borrowing the film and saying they liked it, but Larry knowing they were all lying.

Quotes

[after bumping into each other]
Richie: Well, well, well. What the hell are you doing here?
Evan: What the hell you think I'm doing here?
Richie: Hey, that was quite a joke, really. Really good going!
Evan: Well, I sure as hell didn't think you'd give some bum the keys to your house so you can scare the shit out of your mother!
Richie: You know I could have your license revoked for a stunt like that.
Evan: Well, I wouldn't have done it if you hadn't offered me *three* percent!
Richie: Three percent happened to be a very generous offer! I didn't...

Not worthy of all the praise
10 June 2002 | by GhenghySee all my reviews

I think Larry David is a genius...I'm still bemoaning the loss of Curb Your Enthusiasm and Seinfeld along with the rest of the fans, but this movie has very little resemblance to either. Some funny moments that probably would be enhanced without the expectation of a feature length Larry David production. The two main characters, Stephen Weber and Craig Bierko basically lack the requisite angst filled, anxiety ridden complex that we've become accustomed too. And neither possesses the ethnic credibility to make this work. It's just not very good, and that's a shame. Give movies another shot Larry-you're fans aren't going anywhere. 5/10
