[46:22]When Frank Dooley & Norman Kane arrive at the party, Dooley ID's themselves to Kokolovitch and Raisin as "Pinkus & McCarthy". This is very likely a reference to Senator Joseph McCarthy who called communists "pinkos". The reference would have been more obvious at the time of this film's release during the cold war.

Let's talk a bit about Eugene Levy's hair in the mid 80s, was it just a perm? No, I think it was borderline mesh. What's worse is that I have recently discovered via Mesh Sweats that Levy had a molester moustache in the late 70s. This is fascinating, perm over the ears and a porn stache. Where did our sense of style ever go? If I had lived in the 80s and been in my prime, I would have lived as Gene Wilder's hair or Eugene Levy's hair. Either way, it is one fine species, with style, girth, and attitude. Of course, there's always Kurt Rambis hair, stache, and glasses if we must talk basketball, not bad there either. I wish Rambis was on the waiver wire.......Feb 21 2001 7:17PM
