With only the plan of moving in together after high school, two unusually devious friends seek direction in life. As a mere gag, they respond to a man's newspaper ad for a date, only to find it will greatly complicate their lives.
According to director Terry Zwigoff, Steve Buscemi was so uncomfortable playing the role of Seymour that whenever shooting was finished for the day, he would immediately change his clothes so he could look completely different.
Feldman, the Wheel Chair Guy:
Excuse me... I can't read the trivia question.
Enid: Where in the human body is the Douglas Pouch located?
Feldman, the Wheel Chair Guy: Hah!
Rebecca: Oh, God.
Feldman, the Wheel Chair Guy: Slightly below the uterus. On a female.
Rebecca: He does that every single day.
When Enid and Seymour are in the car they are overtaken on the left by a motorcycle cop. When we cut to the two women crossing the street, there is no sign of the motorcycle.
After all the credits roll, there's another take of the scene where Seymour (Steve Buscemi) gets attacked by Doug in the minimart. Only this time, Buscemi's characer easily wins the fight, choking Doug with his own weapon, and stomps out triumphantly. He finishes with a bunch of Mr. Pink type dialogue.
