Goofs

When the main characters are driving out of Boston to supposedly head for New York City, they are seen passing over the Longfellow Bridge over the Charles River. This leads to Kendall Square in Cambridge and would be not be an acceptable route. In reality they would have taken I90 (Mass Turnpike) to get to New York and would not have crossed the Charles River until the I95 interchange in Newton. See more »

9 September 1999 | by D-FENS-5See all my reviews

When I went to the sneak preview, I was afraid they would give me 'Runaway Bride', but they managed to come up with something so full of nothing, that I almost left during the break (and I have never done that), and I wouldn't have had to convince my friends. This thing is filled with jokes that I would be ashamed to come up with, like a candy bar stuck in the machine. We have never seen that before right? At one point Steve Martin is sitting in a Limo, and realizes he swallowed an XTC pill, then jumps out of the car and starts to rape a tree. John Cleese was the only funny part, but do yourselves a favour, and go see 'Runaway Bride'. I am sure it's much better. Dennis Pennis was right.
