PG-13 | | Comedy, Romance
A best man (Wilson) stays on as a houseguest with the newlyweds, much to the couple's annoyance.
Despite being recognized as a supporting actress, Amanda Detmer is briefly seen in the background in a couple of scenes, and doesn't have a single line in the movie.
What's with this "Carlness?" It's not even a real word.
Dupree: Yes it is.
Carl Peterson: Oh, it is?
Dupree: It's a verb. It's a conjunction. A preposition. It's a philosophy. A way of life. It's your name with "ness" attached to it.
When Neil and Dupree are watching the game at Carl's house, Carl gets home, opens a bottle of scotch and pours himself a glass. When he approaches Dupree he is holding the opened bottle, then the cap is on, then it changes to the glass of scotch that was on the counter, then back to the capped bottle.
(Spoiler) At the end of the credits, Lance Armstrong is shown reading Dupree's book and wondering aloud how to pronounce his "ness" name.
