In the movie Paul Blart: Mall Cop – I think part 2 – there's a scene where Kevin James is chased by a bird. He then yells "Hefewizen" to scare away the animal:

Get away from me. Hefeweizen!

The first time I thought I misheard and then turned on subtitles that confirmed the line.

As Hefeweizen (wheat beer) is a popular German type of beer I doubled up with laughter.

But does anyone know, why he used that term? is this a commonly used word in US language usage?

    Because it is a funny word?
