Trivia

Henry Gibson starred in The Blues Brothers (1980) in which the final scenes of the film had SWAT team members yelling "HUT HUT HUT" as they were moving into position. The same can be seen and heard with SWAT officers near the end of this movie, almost as if it's an indirect reference to the earlier movie. See more »

smells worse than a fart!!!
7 October 2003 | by 393See all my reviews

I recall seeing this movie in a second run theater. I knew I was in trouble when I realized that the packed theater was populated by junior highschool students. I did leave the movie before it was over when I saw Pauly bitting off a corn of his male room mates foot. Avoid this movie at all cost. A complete waste of my and your time.
