Goofs

Dental records cannot be faked. It isn't just a matter of matching up dental work on a couple of Panellipse films (as shown in the movie). There is also everyone's unique bone density/structure, unique root structure, individual tooth sizes and variations in shape to be considered. These are things that cannot be altered. Moreover, those are the things that they look at when identifying someone from dental records. See more »

Quotes

Jimmy: [Oz is mowing his lawn and Jimmy shows up] Hey Oz, since I'm new here I was wondering if you could show me the sites, you know?
Oz: Now?
Jimmy: [puts Oz in the car] Yeah, don't worry it's not gonna kill ya.
Oz: [quietly] Promise?

Crazy Credits

Leanna McOemmecon is listed in the credits as the stand in for Rosanna Arquette, when it should read Leanna McLennan. (I worked as a stand in for Rosanna Arquette while filming in Quebec. The correct spelling of my name is Leanna McLennan. Each day, my name would be spelled differently on the call sheet - McLean, etc. Each day, I would correct it. In the end, I am listed in the credits as Leanna McOemmecon, which I find quite amusing.) See more »

The Best!!!
27 December 2005 | by FMorganaSee all my reviews

This is one (if not the one) of my favorite movies.

I just loved it, it has an excellent plot, perfect acting from most of the actors, specially Matthew Perry... and it's just great when you can find a movie nowadays where you can't predict the ending cause everything is possible to happen.

It's very funny

It's enjoyable

It's a pleasure to watch, alone or even better with friends

You're gonna be in for a real treat...

Although, if you like this one, don't get your hopes up too high... Cause the second one "The Whole Ten Yards", is faaaaaar from this good.

Hope you like this movie as much as I did
