With the help of a talking freeway billboard, a wacky weatherman tries to win the heart of an English newspaper reporter, who is struggling to make sense of the strange world of early 1990s Los Angeles.
The license plate 2GAT123 also appears in Beverly Hills Cop II (1987), Go (1999), Pay It Forward (2000), Traffic (2000), Crazy/Beautiful (2001), Mulholland Drive (2001), S.W.A.T. (2003), and Two and a Half Men (2003). It is the California standard fictional license plate, analogous to a "555" telephone number.
Sheila has been studying the art of conversation.
Harris: Oh, you're taking a course in conversation?
As Harris is driving south on the 110 freeway after the "Open Season on the L.A. Freeway scene", you see absolutely no traffic on the northbound side, even though it is mid-day.
Just before the credits begin, the freeway sign flashes the message, "WHAT I REALLY WANT TO DO IS DIRECT"
A deleted scene featuring John Lithgow was reinstated in the cable-tv version of the film.
