Vince Vieluf, who portrays Blaine Cody, did not appear on any of the film's posters or promotional material, even though he is one of the main characters. This was due to an agent who tried to secure star billing and failed. Vieluf has since fired the agent. See more »
When all the characters get to Silver City and get to the locker room, we see Seth Green in the background and the dude with the tongue ring in front leaning on the door frame. The next shots shows Seth in the front and the tongue guy behind him saying he's sleeping. How did Seth get there so fast? See more »

Confederate... confederate... THROW THE BALL! That's why you're not going to get drafted! You'll be lucky to play arena football in Barcelona!
Gus the Cabbie:
You like football?
Gus the Cabbie:
Did you happen to catch that, uh, Dallas game last week? You can't really call it a game, it was more of an obscenity, a crime against football. I lost twenty grand on that game! And they would have won! Now I gotta work TWO shifts because of that idiot! I mean, Stevie Wonder...

The DVD contains 6 deleted scenes:
A scene in which one of the highrollers questions what they are doing.
A scene where the highrollers play monopoly using real money.
An additional scene on the Lucy bus.
An extended version of the Lucys chasing Owen. In this scene, they are stopped by a bus of Ricky Ricardo lookalikes
A scene in which Owen gets a ride from a moving house.
A guiltless pleasure that is funny simply because it doesn't rely on a boatload of fart jokes
After seeing the first trailer for this film, I thought
it would too hokey for my tastes. However, like has happened on many other occasions, I was surprised by the humor in the film. While the principal characters were important in the movie, why didn't Wayne Knight get any billing? He's probably one of the best overweight actors since John Candy, and this guy can't get any work!? He was the only good reason to watch Seinfeld. Anyway, I felt this movie was quite a departure for some actors, and a great one for those who have made a movie such as this before. Jon Lovitz was excellent in this film, along with Mr. Bean (or Rowan Atkinson as he is called by non-Mr. Bean fans, who must be a sad group of people). The only downside to this film was the ending, which had yet another bad song by Smashmouth (and it was All-Star once again!). Overall, a good movie.
