Trivia

Brian Henson's worst day on set was when he had to play Crab. He had to be inside a trash can so that he could direct while operating and voice Crab. While he was in there, he suddenly felt something cold and liquid creeping down his back. A crew member who thought it was a real trash can had carelessly thrown in a half-full bottle of beer.

Goofs

[SPOILER] It is never explained how Jenny survived the car explosion, especially when the camera never moves from the car after she enters, and her body is visible in the driver's seat. See more »

A silly puerile comedy.
28 November 2018 | by BurnsknightSee all my reviews

No idea what people were hoping for who left 1 star reviews but this is exactly what I expected- a funny, foul-mouthed, immature and very entertaining comedy
