Energized by his new parts, Marvin leaves his weakness behind and achieves instant fame as a supercop.

In both audio commentaries on the Uncut version of the DVD, it is mentioned that Harry Dean Stanton played the part of a hunter staking out the Man-Beast in the forest, but nearly all of the footage ended up on the cutting room floor. He can still be seen, uncredited, being attacked in once scene after Marvin asks Rianna to tie him up. See more »
When Sergeant Sisk, played by John C McGinley, enters the Mayor's party in full dress uniform, he is wearing police ribbons & awards of the Los Angeles City Police Department along with US Military ribbons and awards. The first ribbon below his name tag and to the left is the Police Meritorious Service Medal, the second medal is the Police Star, the first green, yellow and red ribbon in the second row is the Police Distinguished Service Medal followed by an unknown ribbon and another unknown ribbon.

At the end of the credits you can hear "That's a huge bitch", which is the same thing heard when "Deuce Bigalow" (played by Rob Schneider) was with the Six Foot Woman. See more »
Network television versions include additional footage. Among these scenes include Marvin hiding out from the angry mob near the end of the film at the home of an elderly nearsighted woman (played by Cloris Leachman), who thinks Marvin is her pet cat and forces him to eat cat food. See more »
I liked this movie, even though I feel the trailer made it seem more funny than it actually is. Still, its enjoyable, and has the type of unbelievable humor that I like, that goofy off-the-wall ingredient that really good comedies have. Worth a watch or two.
