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.
Randall "Tex" Cobb had previously starred opposite Jim Carrey in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994).
Order! Order! ORDER!
Fletcher: Knock it off!
Judge Stevens: SIT DOWN!
When Fletcher picks up Max to go to the wrestling match, Fletcher quotes that they're going to see "Rick Rude and Randy "Macho Man" Savage in the cage of death." This could've never happened as Savage was in WCW at the time and Rude was in WWF (now WWE) and had retired as an active wrestler in 1994. Even if Fletcher was recounting his own memories of seeing live wrestling, neither WWF or WCW have ever called their cage matches a "Cage of Death."
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.
