Favorite Quote:
Harry:
Yeah I called her up. She gave me a bunch of crap about me not listening to her, or something. I don’t know, I wasn’t really paying attention.

Review: This movie is hilarious!

Jeff Daniels on the toilet is one of the funniest comedy scenes I’ve ever seen. When I saw it in the cinema I laughed so hard I almost fainted.

The scene with Harland Williams (in his screen debut) drinking pee also makes this movie a must-see.

Nerdiest Movie Trivia:
Nicolas Cage and Gary Oldman were the original choices to play Harold and Lloyd.


But everything isn’t just pee and poo humor, for all of you “getting you tongue frozen stuck to metal”-lovers won’t be disappointed either!

Gratuitous Swedish Lesson: The bikini girl played by Anna Anka is speaking Swedish in the bikini bus scene. She says “Hej allihopa” (Hello everybody) and “Hej då” (Goodbye).
