This seems to remind you of something, don't it?
Yeah, only it was the other way around.

I really like Sam Elliott, he was real huge in Gettysburg as General Buford, or he was very very decent as Sheriff Bucky O'Neal in Rough Riders. Here, he is a pale shade of his later self. Tom Selleck is not of a much help, too. What is the main reason? Weak script, and a very strange, almost skewed genre - it borders on a deep drama and then, it almost glides onto a farce, or a comedy. Very light, almost comedy-prone music is not suitable here as well. The film was made but the same fella who did great The Undefeated. Here, a huge disillusion awaits. The wry smile of Selleck tires itself off very soon, and raw character of Elliott is a big drawback, too. The main pair does not hold our attention and leaves rather bored, if not bemused. Do not watch this mish-mash of genres, a waste of time, and really nothing new. Very trite and banal. It is also so badly predictable, you can easily say what's lurking round the corner next frame. Boring, unfunny stuff.
