Top Trivia Edit

Interestingly, this is not a sequel to any previous films. The correct pronunciation of the title is "Fish Out Of Water The Third", and refers to the aristocratic nature of the fish out of water situation: the fish becoming "the king" of the land he unexpectedly finds himself on. The name of the main character, George Farmer, is a direct reference to "Farmer George", the nickname for George III of England, and is where the 'III' in the title comes from. Audiences didn't understand this subtle allusion but went and saw the film anyway, because everybody loves a sequel.


Notable Quotes Edit

George: Oh boy, leaving Kansas City has had more impact on me than I realized! I'll clear my mind by taking a walk south along Main Street.

Linda: Here in Iowa City, Main Street runs east/west.

George: Whaaaaaaaaaaaaa?
