Trivia

Towards the end of the film, Brodie (Jason Lee) tells an anecdotal story about his cousin Walter masturbating as a plane is seemingly going down, with the rest of the passengers doing the same thinking they're going to die, only to have the problem resolved. Almost Famous (2000) had a very similar occurrence wherein, under the impression their plane is going to crash, members of the fictional band Stillwater and their company start professing their darkest secrets, but the planes issue is resolved, and no party talks about it afterward. Jason Lee also starred in Almost Famous. See more »

Crazy Credits

The director would like to thank:

God - for another opportunity to tell my stupid stories. Scott - for deciding not to hike around the world. Jim - for treating us like the Coens as opposed to the twenty-something know-nothings we really are. Sean - for bringing a pedigree to the project. Pierson - for keeping me pure. Mom and dad - for having sex all those years ago Kristin - for playing "Rene" to my "Brodie" far too many times than she should have. Bob - for laughing during the pitch. Dave - for even prettier pictures than the first bunch. Walt - for being the "Brodie" template, dixie cup and all. Joey - for being my "equiator." The cast and crew - for humoring me. The front credit artists - for lending us phat credibility in the world of comics. Cotty - for the cool book Fitz - for the fan-boy trading cards The audience - for showing up. And lastly... John Landis and John Hughes - for giving me something to do throughout my youth on friday nights. See more »

Excellent satire
12 April 1999 | by Starbuck-13See all my reviews

This movie is really extremely funny.

That is, if you are into either Comics, Science Fiction or Shopping Malls.

The basic idea is simple: Two dumped guys try to win their girl-friends back, and their brilliant strategy is to hang around in the local shopping mall.

What makes the movie work is the wonderful mix of slap stick humor, intelligent puns and gross sexual innuendos. The actors are excellent in their roles, and I was surprised to see Ben Affleck and Claire Forlani, two coming actors, credited for supporting roles.

For a comic fan this movie is a awfully funny experience. But I can imagine that the film looses some of its appeal when you are not familiar with the Marvel and DC comic heroes and the strange passion (and science) of collecting comic books.

And to everybody who has also failed in seeing a sailboat in those dumb 3-D-pictures, this movie provides some comfort...
