Trivia

When Justin Long is in bar "H" it's referencing Bar "I" (for Bar Italia) in Winnipeg. Basically a capital I turned on its side. Jason Mews worked on Todd and the Book of Pure Evil when it shot two seasons in Winnipeg, and it is (more was than is) a popular place for film and TV crews to hang out after work. See more »

The flag in the border office is not the right size - a Canadian flag is twice as long as it is wide. See more »

Watched once three years ago... STILL thinking about it!
23 December 2018 | by able-70721See all my reviews

I watched when it first came out on DVD... Haven't watched since... bought the DVD... still in shrink wrap. This isn't to say I don't like the movie, but I don't know when I'm going to feel ready to 'attack that beast' again

It really opened up the important question - what WOULD you do if your partner were turned into a walrus?
