Will and Holly hide behind a statue that has "Big Boy" on it. This is the statue located at Bob's Big Boy restaurants. There was a location at 72155 Baker Boulevard in Baker, California next to the World's Biggest Thermometer, and was near where that scene was filmed. That location is now closed. See more »
During the rescue attempt when Holly is in the cage, Will is lying on the floor and trips a Sleestak over. The shot then goes to Rick and Holly swinging away from him revealing only Will at the edge of the pit, however the next shot shows Will pushing the Sleestak he just tripped into the lava. See more »

Many reviews for this will have you thinking this film is terrible, i'm baffled as to why this is the case. The fact of the matter is that this film is fun and well made.
To get some negatives out of the way first, its definitely got a few obnoxious crude jokes. It also could have been a bit funnier at times. But overall it definitely put me in a good mood, especially because I'm a huge Will Ferrell and Danny McBride fan. I love how Wll Ferrell can deliver such ridiculous lines of dialogue with a straight face.
Despite being a major Hollywood film, I felt like this film had heart to it and didn't really feel hollow. I know I had already touched on this before but I just don't think all the hate on this movie is justified. It's coherent from beginning to end, all the lines are delivered well and it's very goofy. Not to mention the cgi isn't half bad as well.
Overall it's definitely a fun movie with a few small flaws. Ignore all the hate and go into this with an open mind, not expecting it to be quite like the old TV show, and you'll probably enjoy yourself.
