Goofs

Large emphasis was placed at the start of the movie that regulations state a female prisoner must have a female escort present during transfer, it was only that Devane was duped into signing the release form why they were forced to ignore this strict regulation, however after they release her into the custody of the Navy at the end, she then again is escorted by two separate male SP's with nobody thinking anything of it.

You have to "get" Hopper's sense of humor
27 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you want a fun romp with loads of subtle humor, then you will enjoy this flick.

I don't understand why anyone wouldn't enjoy this one. Take it for what it is: a vehicle for Dennis Hopper to mess with your head and make you laugh. It ain't Shakespeare, but it is well done. Ericka Eleniak is absolutely beautiful and holds her own in this one - Better than any episode of Baywatch - and shows a knack for subtle humor. Too bad she hasn't had many opportunities to expand on that.

Tom Berenger fits his role of "real Navy" perfectly and William McNamara does a solid job as a hustler.

Throw in a walk-on by Hopper in the middle of the chase for "the Cherry on this Sundae" and you've got a movie that kept my attention and kept me laughing. I bought this one as soon as it was available.

Brain-candy.
