Goofs

Dick states there's 11 cream pies on his desk when there's actually 13 visible to the camera and although we only see Mary & Nina applying 10 pies it can be quite clearly be seen that (between the 8th one and the double finish of the final two) extra cream magically appeared on Dick's chest. So the 13 pies were all used but we were only shown 10 of them being applied. See more »

Quotes

Tommy Solomon: No, I don't get it. Give me an example of what's funny.
August: OK, let's see, um... I thought the movie "Emma" was really funny.
Tommy Solomon: What was funny about it?
August: Didn't you get it? It was full of irony.
Tommy Solomon: OK, so irony's funny.
August: Sure, because someone says something, and the opposite is actually true.
Tommy Solomon: Oh, OK, like, like when you told me "Emma" was going to be a really great movie, when actually it sucked out loud?
