In the original version at the beginning of the car trashing scene,there is a shot of the back of the car going down the road while Pink Caddilac is playing. The UK version which omits the song deletes this shot. See more »
This movie was panned when it came out but I think it got a bum rap. Joe Piscopo has a tough role playing an idiot (not as easy as you would think it would be) and Danny DeVito's energy helps carry the film along. Great to see Harvey Keitel in a role that doesn't involve blowing someone's brains out. This is a great flick to catch on cable on a rainy afternoon. Silly but fun.
