Trivia
Richard Ridings plays a character named Hugh Primates who later in the film wears a gorilla suit. Ridings eventually got to play the gorilla Buck through motion capture in Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011).

In A Fish Called Wanda (1988), Jamie Lee Curtis' character had the same name as the title fish. In this film, John Cleese's character Rollo has the same name as a lemur.

There is an obvious reference to one of John Cleese's and Michael Palin's most famous sketches, the Dead Parrot Sketch, from Monty Python's Flying Circus (1969). In the sea lion scene, two men can be heard saying: "Remarkable creatures, sea lions." "Yes, beautiful plumage." Which sounds amazingly like Palin's line in the sketch: "Remarkable bird, the Norwegian Blue, isn't it, eh? Beautiful plumage!"

When Vince says 'I am not a wuss' to Rod, John Cleese in the background also mouths the line.
