PG-13 | | Comedy, Romance, Sport
Pitka, an American raised outside of his country by gurus, returns to the States in order to break into the self-help business. His first challenge is to settle the romantic troubles and subsequent professional skid of a star hockey player whose wife left him for a rival athlete.
The song playing on the radio station Pitka changes to in the car after the bathroom scene is Bohemian Rhapsody, a reference to Myers' movie Wayne's World (1992).
That is going to knock some change out of his coin purse!
When Cherkov hits Pitka in the genitals, Pitka should not react with pain considering he is wearing a chastity belt. However, Pitka's quick recovery from the injury shows that he is just acting for the crowd to conceal the belt's existence, due to embarrassment over having to wear it. Cherkov can also be seen as reacting in surprised pain, shaking his hand while Pitka collapses.
One outtake with Verne Troyer is shown during the end credits.
