Did You Know?

Trivia

The character of "Bruce" is only ever known by his lookalike name and is never referred to by his real personal name. Similary, nor is there a personal name ever given for the godfather character known as "The Boss of Bosses". See more »

Goofs

In the movie, "Bruce" sees the Boss of Bosses giving Freddy the "Kiss Of Death" and mentions that he knows about the kiss because he watched the Godfather movies. "Bruce" also mentions to the Boss of Bosses that he doesn't kiss as good as Marlon Brando. In actuality, Marlon Brando never gave the kiss of death in the original film "The Godfather". The kiss of death was actually first given by Al Pacino in "The Godfather Part II" to John Cazale. See more »

Quotes

Bruce: Do you like sushi like I like sushi?
Cowboy: I like Susie... Susie's my girl!
Bruce: Oh, I had sushi last night!

One of the funniest movies ever!!
18 August 2003 | by (Cut Off, La) – See all my reviews

Yes it's cheaply made, yes it's stupid, and yes it's cheesy, But, this is one of the funniest movies that I've ever seen. Johnny Yune is great in this one (I wish he would have made more movies). His one liners are so cheesy that you can't help but laugh, and his facial expressions when he is swinging those nunchucks makes me hit the rewind button every time...... Anyone who does not find this movie funny does not have a sense of humor!!!
