At the end of the movie, during the wedding. As Jack is asking Ben for the rings, Ben kids around and pretends to have lost them. If you look at the ring finger of Jack's left hand, he is clearly already wearing his wedding ring. See more »

How about... Squatting Dog?
[Jack gives him a surprised look]
Squatting Dog? That's the best you could come up with?
I had a dog once who had a terrible case of the squirts. He was my best friend in the whole world.
Didn't you have any other pets?
I had a squirrel named Numb Nuts.
I think I'll take... Squatting Dog.

No bees were harmed during the making of this film. All bee action was supervised by Dr. Norman E. Gary, entomologist. See more »
The Disney Channel version also has an entirely different scene, in which the Indian Guides play a game called "I've Always Wondered", where they discuss things that they've always wondered. This more subtly achieves what the NBC television version does with Jack's speech in which he pretends to be an Italian actor playing a Native American. There are additional small changes in the Disney Channel edit that enhance the film. See more »
I'm just now watching this on TV, and find it an enjoyable but fairly standard Disney type plot, with the usual misunderstandings based on lack of communication. Eventually justice will triumph, I'm sure, with all the usual civilian-vs-bad-guy showdown and broken-relationships-cemented stereotypes, still enjoyable to watch in each new screenplay. I mainly wanted to comment on a cute cameo that I didn't find mentioned anywhere. At the very beginning of the film, establishing the relationship of Farah Fawcett and her son, he mentions how she dated a few guys but they were all losers. They show a few seconds of one of these dates, with the fellow clowning around at the beach. If you watch closely you will see it is Ryan O'Neal!
