While Pluto is in his hidden moon-warehouse/lair checking his computer to find the crook, he is given a sandwich. From behind we see he takes a big bite from the middle of the sandwich. When we cut to face Pluto, the bite has moved to the edge and the middle is bite-free. See more »

User Reviews

laughed from start to finish
19 August 2002 | by imdb-906See all my reviews

I go to the movies to be entertained and this one certainly did that for me. The biggest source of fun was seeing the juxtaposition of old movie cliches - gangsters, seedy nightclubs, and hot wired cars - placed in the futuristic setting of a campy lunar colony. I laughed from start to finish and enjoyed the surprise ending. I found "Pluto Nash" to be a very entertaining diversion.
