Trivia

When Max Shady adjusts the setting on his silencer while planning to kill Ned Levine on the train you will notice a volume setting that goes up to 11. This is a nod to Carl Reiner's son Rob's mock rockumentary "This is Spinal Tap" which stars Christopher Guest. Guest's character (Nigel Tufnel) proudly displays his amp that also goes to 11.

I Don't Know how this movie could be any better!!!! Funny Film!!!
15 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Armand Assante plays a great "distracted" Ned Ravine and brings comic timing that Johnny Carson would admire. Kate Nelligan plays Lana Ravine (Ned's Wife)and does a great Barbara Stanywick imitation through-out the film.These two combine with Sean Young,Sheilyn Fenn ,and Christopher McDonald to make a hilarious film parody of the noir/crime movies that were serious and exaggerated that we all tried not to laugh at.When you're having a bad day turn this flick on and good tings will happen.A gotta see film.No matter what you have heard go catch "Fatal Instinct"

If you like Spy Hard,Naked Gun ,Airplane,etc.You'll like this film.
