When Colt is mixing his cocktail in his trailer, the bottle of Jack Daniels he picks up is the colour of cola in the first shot but then a much lighter shade when he puts it down in the subsequent shot. See more »
This is a spoof of the Lethal Weapon movies, along with Basic Instinct, Silence Of The Lambs and a few other crime movies. It's pretty tame profanity-wise, but this spoof is no "family fare," that's for sure. It's also pretty darn funny.
There are a lot of verbal and sight gags, cheap shots and sleazy comments, impossible to catch them all in one viewing. That's maybe the only negative: too many sex jokes which is why this is rated PG-13 (and could easily be "R"). Emilo Estavez, Samuel J. Jackson, Jon Lovitz, Tim Curry and William Shatner all show their comedic talents, as does supermodel Kathy Ireland.
All-in-all, a fun 80 minutes, especially when you are familiar with all the movies they are making fun of in this film.
