I liked this movie
1 March 2001 | by See all my reviews

Look I admit its not the greatest ever made but I enjoyed it alot. It does not really do much wrong except maybe take the idea a bit far to be believable but look it beats an action movie. I wish they had made better charactors who were more believeable but that would have risked making it less funny. I remember though most clearly on of the lines from the movie which really stood out and was hilarious and is still everytime I think about it. Alex Baldwin is getting beaten up and thrown round a room by this hotshot rich guy who he really does not like and he gets thrown into a cupboard totally destroying the room and he is busy of all things handing out insults to his aggressor. The best of which is: "that suit...it looks like the lining to a better suit"
