The wealthy Phil (Johnny Whitaker) recently sold his computer company in order to spend more time with his model son Chris (Justin Cone), who couldnt care less.

    The film is one of several direct-to-video family films directed by David DeCoteau under the pseudonym Mary Crawford, including A Talking Pony!?!, An Easter Bunny Puppy and A Halloween Puppy. It was shot in three days in the same mansion as director DeCoteaus 1313 series. Eric Roberts dialogue was recorded in 15 minutes.


    Critical reception has been predominantly negative, with criticizing the character of Duffy. The AV Club gave a mostly negative review for the film, but stated that "For lovers of utter, unredeemable trash, it is highly recommended." CraveOnline also gave a negative review, but also recommended it as a film for "Bad Movie Night".

    In an interview, DeCoteau said of the film, “People have called me who I haven’t seen since high school who said, ‘David, after 100 movies you’ve finally made a movie we like.’� He added, "I watched it again, because I hadn’t seen it since we made it, and it is so ridiculous and hilarious and over-the-top."
