The part where the penis gets cut off
Adam Devine: We wanted to jump into our characters' scene, where the terrorists do something pretty insane and violent, but we didn't want it to just be a standard death. So we were like, What would be a funny thing that could happen, that we could see them being terrorists? And we were like, Obviously, dick cuttin' off!
And I love Daniel Stern, [who plays the main characters' boss, the hotelier]. He's a childhood hero to all of us. It's one thing to have an actor who you don't really know or who you're not as huge a fan of get their dick cut off, but it's a totally other thing to have Daniel Stern, a Sticky Bandit, a true comedy icon and somebody, especially from our childhood, through all the Home Alone movies and everything else he's done, get his dick cut off.
We got the dick from a special-effects company that makes real-looking prosthetics for film and television. They sent us multiple sizes, but since Stern's character is such a creep, we were like, Well, why is he always thinking about sex? Who is this guy? It would make sense that he just has a giant dick, and it's also funnier to have a giant dick fall out of the pants and then get punted across the room later on -- which was always the plan, that he would save the day with his dick. So we wanted to have something that was a little girthy and had some weight to it. Luckily, this company just had a giant hog laying around.
Now, for the sequel, we need to get Joe Pesci in there and hopefully lop off something of his.
