Question: I live in the UK and I was watching this movie when it was broadcasted on T.V. When Harry is trying to fix Mary's toilet I could have sworn I saw Harry literally rip the toilet off the floor and tip the contents out the window and yet I have never seen this on the video or DVD. Could I just have been imagining it or does it have something to do with the American version?

Chosen answer: This is a scene that was cut from the theatrical release of the film, but is present in the extended cut and some international DVD versions.

Question: Which model of car were Harry and Lloyd driving in Aspen? I think it's a really cool one.

Question: They stop at a restaurant called 'Dante's Inferno', hottest food east of the Mississippi.' Is this a real place? Where is it?

Chosen answer: In this link there is something about a restaurant called Dante's Inferno. If you look at the map, you can see that it lies on the 191. It lies in Montana, but I'm not sure that it is the same restaurant. http://chefmoz.org/United_States/MT/Big_Sky/Dante's_Inferno1029620067.html

Chosen answer: Looks like a Cushman mini-bike manufactured in the late '60's in the U.S.A.

Question: When Mary and Lloyd are in the hotel room, and Nicholas knocks on the door, Lloyd goes to answer and says "Hi, we have plenty of towels thanks". The thing I don't understand is why Mary comes up behind Lloyd a few seconds after he has started speaking with a shocked look on her face. She didn't know Nicholas was at the door, so why the shock and also why did she follow Lloyd to the door?

Chosen answer: Simple curiosity made her follow Lloyd. Her surprise at seeing Nicholas was purely because she wasn't expecting to see him, she didn't know at that time that he was one of the bad guys and as far as she knew, there was no need for him to be there.

Question: It's never shown or explained in the movie, so does someone know why Bobby (Mary's husband) was kidnapped and why Nicholas was behind it?

Chosen answer: If I recall correctly, Mary and Bobby's family is very wealthy. Knowing this, Nicholas, a family acquaintance, betrays them and has Bobby kidnapped for a ransom, meanwhile Nicholas is in close contact with Mary urging her to meet the kidnapper's demands for the safety of her husband.

Question: I heard that the famous scene where Jim Carrey makes "the most annoying sound in the world" was an ad lib. Any truth to this?

Chosen answer: Apparently yes, he ad-libbed that line. There were a few other instances in the film where he supposedly adlibbed including the man on the moon line, and when he eats the condiments after eating the chillis.
