Near the end of the film at the movie theater, they are supposedly showing a marathon of 3D films. Some are actual theatrical 3D releases, but most are made up. Those that are real films are House of Wax (1953), Dial M for Murder (1954) and Comin' at Ya! (1981). All the others are fake, which include "Syborg" (which could be a parody title for Metalstorm: The Destruction of Jared-Syn (1983)), "The Bug" (which is a probably a parody title for the real 3D movie Parasite (1982)), "Biloxi (spelled wrong as "Boulxi") Blood Bath", "Chainsaw Child", "Hell House", "Battle For Berkeley", "Bat Beast", "Zenobia", "Pedestrian Bondage", "Glendale Girls Go Berserk", "Zulu", "Watts Wilderness", "Richard III", "Death Cult Bar-Mitsva" and "Sioux City". There are a bunch of other titles on the right side marquee, but they are hard to read. See more »

I first saw this movie as a kid, and being a juvenile at the time, I of course loved the juvenile humor (not to mention the nudity). But humor is one of those things that rarely ages well, and I fully expected all these years later to find that the movie was rather, well, juvenile. Very pleasantly surprised to find that it really was still funny, even if Hanks himself is so over the top that it makes the central storyline (Tawny Kitaen wants to marry him) unbelievable. Its silly, low brow, and yet exuberant and consistently funny throughout. One of those movies where everybody is having such a good time that its hard not to yourself, and the jokes are fearlessly tasteless. Not a classic, but still fun nearly 30 years later (has it been nearly 30 years? wow!).
