Trivia

Scott jokes in a stand-up performance that his dad saw The Revenant (2015) "and said, 'oh, I get it. I wanna fuck a bear.'" This is a reference to a widely discussed rumor, originating from a Drudge Report article published before the movie's release, that the film contained a scene in which Leonardo DiCaprio's character is raped by a bear, leading 20th Century Fox and DiCaprio to respond saying that there was no bear rape in the film, and that the scene in question depicted a female bear mauling him because she thought he was trying to harm her cubs.

Enjoyable but cliched film. Best part is Billy Crystal whose character Marty is superbly played. Of this type of buddy film 'Paddleton' is the king.
