Goofs

As written Grandma is erroneously stopped from leaving on a flight to Paris to watch Tommy's non-existent French astronaut girlfriend being launched into space. The European Space Agency's Ariane rocket is not launched from Europe, it is launched from South America. The Guiana Space Center near Kourou, Guiana (Guiana is France's largest overseas territory) allows the Ariane booster to lift larger payloads by launching into a near equatorial orbit. See more »

Crazy on the Inside
27 July 2010 | by ChrysanthepopSee all my reviews

I'd say enjoy it for what it is. Tim Allen's comedy 'Crazy on the Outside' was made to make people laugh. The title should be enough to suggest so. I don't know why people were and why they should be expecting otherwise. I for one had a great time watching it. with actors like Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, J.K. Simmons and Kelsey Grammar, who wouldn't have fun? Agreed that the story isn't exactly one of a kind but the humour is more than satisfactory. The dramatic sequences are a little clichéd but they are short and well acted. Tim Allen, Julie Bowen, J.K. Simmons, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Helen Slayton-Hughes, Ray Liotta and Kelsey Grammar act very well but it's Sigourney Weaver who's the scene stealer as she delivers a sincere and natural performance as Tommy's slightly crazy sister. Overall, if you don't take it too seriously, it will make you laugh. Don't pay too much heed to the negative reviews.
