​Trivia

  • This is the first film in the Zachary & Ainsley film series where Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer owns distribution rights, the only film in the original film series to be released on DVD and Blu-Ray by Paramount Home Media Distribution in the US and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment internationally and the last film in the series to be produced by Sony Pictures Animation.
  • The film has 8 things in common with South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (1999):

  2. The scene where Sherlock Sheahomes lights himself on fire while setting off fireworks with his tail using a dynamite stick on them and dies when his heart gets replaced with a blood bag is similar to where Kenny McCormick lights himself on fire to prove Kyle Broflovski, Stan Marsh and Eric Cartman that he can light his fart on fire and dies when his heart gets replaced with a baked potato in South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (1999).

Zachary Bortz​: Man, we ran 9 miles which means 17 laps is enough for a day, don't you agree, Ainsley?

​Ainsley Bortz: Yeah. We're all sweaty now.

​Leah Bortz: Our bodies are all red and sweaty.

Clancatcher Bortz: I tend to agree. How about 96 hours of relaxation to cool off?

​Zachary Bortz: Yeah, I agree. Our bodies look spicy when we're all red and sweaty.

[everyone laughs]

Meredith Bortz: ​LOL.

​Alexa Bortz: ​Good one, Zach.

​Spearslinger Indian: ​I agree with them.

​[Maddie Bortz walks up to the entrance gate to Spice]

Maddie Bortz: Maddie to friends. Zach and Ainsley have scored 80% on their full blood test. They only failed the Turkey Challenge, where Sophia and Abworker helped them save the twins from being eaten by a turkey, which they didn't succeed. (yells) ​Hey, spicy universe, bite my shiny metal a--​(she thrusts her shorts onto the gate and screams as she is launched into the air by the explosion)
