snothouse - 2011-08-18 From Wiki:
"The original cast for the film included Joan Rivers in Bobcat Goldthwait's role. Elliot Gould was the original voice of the horse. After a poor test screening of the film, the horse's half of the script was rewritten by future Monk creator and executive producer Andy Breckman in an effort to make the film funnier. John Candy was hired to re-record the horse's voice; he ignored the new script and improvised the dialogue instead."
Tim Burton was also slated to direct.

Hailey2006 - 2011-08-19 Tim read the script, thought it was shit and made Beetlejuice instead!
Xenocide - 2011-08-18 The talking horse is much more believable than the idea that anyone could be in the same room with Bobcat Godlwait for five minutes without punching him.
La Loco - 2011-08-18 Have you listened to an interview with him? He's pretty insightful.
Louddetective - 2017-03-30 Having been born in the late 80s it's honestly pretty difficult for me to believe Bobcat Goldthwait actually existed / exists
