Trivia

During pre-production, the film was originally supposed to carry a hard R rating, but after deliberations, the studio had to tone down the film's script to PG-13. This meant changing the plot, dialogue, and characters. John August was hired as a "script doctor" to make these changes. See more »

Goofs

Very Funny Movie
21 December 2001 | by shaqkobelakers87See all my reviews

I know that many people may not like this movie, but I thought it was very good. The plot was very simple and unique, the characters performed well, and the movie itself was very entertaining. There were some funny and memorable parts, including the famous oodles of noodles scene. In my opinion the funniest character in Blue Streak was Sulley. All of his parts were funny, and I feel he expressed his part very well. I recommend that you see this movie before Blue Streak 2 comes out in 2002. Overall, 8 of 10.
