Jack says, about an hour into the movie, "you don't buy her Suzy Creamcheese act, do you" refers to a character created by Frank Zappa, whose music screenwriter Billy Bob Thornton is a fan of. Suzy appears as a character on the Zappa albums Freak Out!, Absolutely Free (which contains a song called "Son of Suzy Creamcheese") and Uncle Meat. See more »

CAMOUFLAGE, Decent and entertaining
CAMOUFLAGE is a film noir spoof starring Lochlyn Munro as a failing stage actor who takes a job working with a crusty private investigator (Leslie Nielsen) This takes them to a seedy small town where a murder plot against a wealthy gravel pit owner is being planned.
Munro and Nielsen are surprisingly a good comic team in this decent, entertaining movie. A certain change of pace for Nielsen, escaping from his Frank Drebin role from The Naked Gun. Here he plays a foul mouthed, sharp P.I.
Also starring Patrick Warburton, Vanessa Angel and William Forsythe, CAMOUFLAGE is quite a good film. While most direct to video films are over looked, this one should be seen. A good cast and entertaining scenes make it exceptional.
