Did You Know?


In William H. Macy's bar scene, the video game seen in background is Frogger (1981).


Narrator: In the New York Herald, November 26, year 1911, there is an account of the hanging of three men. They died for the murder of Sir Edmund William Godfrey; Husband, Father, Pharmacist and all around gentle-man resident of: Greenberry Hill, London. He ...


During the argument between the adults and the kids during the game show, the kids and Cynthia, the show's producer, discover that Stanley peed in his pants. She appears in the shot right next to Stanley. When the camera cuts to show a different angle from the kids and the adults competitors, she disappears from the shot to later on return when there's a close-up with her and Stanley.

Crazy Credits

As the credit for Robert Downey Sr. scrolls up the screen, the words "(a prince)" appear next to his name.

Alternate Versions

After watching the documentary "That Moment" on the supplementary DVD, you can see a deleted scene. The scene involves Orlando Jones' character 'The Worm,' his son (who appears in Officer Jim and Linda's scenes), and an unidentified boy. In it, the young rapping boy, Dixon, rushes into a restaurant where his father is staying, and eventually pulls a gun on him. The gun appears to be Jim's lost gun. Perhaps the scene would have further explained how it was so mysteriously returned to Jim in the end of the film. In the documentary, the director seems to be having a tough time with the scene, perhaps explaining why it was cut.
