The address on the envelope received by Franklin Franklin is 1700 Marlton Avenue, which does not exist in Los Angeles, California. The Marlton Building, filming location for the apartments, had a street address of 4041 S. Marlton Avenue, and was part of a mixed office and retail development. It has since been demolished.

3 minutes have been cut on the Blu-ray version, most notably a scene between Franklin (Matt Lucas) and Dr. Sage Mennox (Dolph Lundgren, between 85:05 - 87:43 NTSC). That scene was present on the R1 US DVD. None of the Blu-rays (U.S., Norwegian or Australian editions) contain that scene. Australian DVD is also cut (88:24 PAL runtime).
However it is reported the German DVD may also be uncut (92:06 PAL runtime). See more »
I love this movie. Yes, the first 15 minutes catch you wondering if it is headed anywhere interesting. It is at least quite quirky and keeps you involved.
However, as the film progresses, you learn about the various characters and realize it has much deeper meaning and dialog. The movie just gets better and better until an ending which anybody has to love. This is a movie that sticks and will have you thinking about it long afterwards.
The lowly rating on this has me thinking that people just didn't see anything in the first 5 minutes to keep them going. I guess they bail before anything happens.
