When Arlo's Saab is brought back, there is a car door from a police car attached to the bumper with the words "GO POLICE" visible. The font and color are the same as the Chicago Police Department, used at the time of filming. See more »

Moving should be rated higher! This movie's premise is great as it turns the act of moving into an absolute hilarity!! Family moves from New Jersey to Boise Idaho! You just know plenty of wacky hijinks are gonna occur!
