PG-13 | | Comedy, Fantasy
A fast-track lawyer can't lie for 24 hours due to his son's birthday wish after he disappoints his son for the last time.
The filmmakers purposely chose not to explain why the wish came true.
Is wrestling real?
Fletcher: In the Olympics, yes. On channel 23, no.
When pulled over by the motorcycle cop, Fletcher admits to unpaid parking tickets and opens the glove box of the car and the tickets all fall out. This is impossible since the Mercedes SL-Class (R129) series, including Fletcher's SL500, never were fitted with glove boxes due to interior space limitations. The dashboard shown in this scene is actually that of a 1993 Mercedes 300SE/500SEL (W140). This is made obvious by the fact that later, when Fletcher is accusing the car impound guy of scratching his car, the entire dashboard is noticeably different from how it is during the parking ticket scene, as is the rest of the interior.
Outtakes are shown during the credits.
Randall 'Tex' Cobb's role (as "Skull) was considerably shortened prior to release. Originally filmed was a courtroom prologue where Fletcher successfully defends Skull using his usual, less-than-truthful tactics. Also filmed was a sequence in the jail where Fletcher meets Skull again in jail. The courtroom prologue was dropped entirely, but remnants of it still remain in the original theatrical trailers. The jail-cell scene was shortened, so much so that Cobb only has one line in the entire film, despite a prominent billing. The prologue is featured in the 'deleted scenes' section of the Special Edition DVD release.
