Shame tells the bodyguard/thug (played by Sven-Ole Thorsen) to "say hello to Arnold for me" before hitting him with the gun. Thorsen has appeared on screen in nine different Arnold Schwarzenegger movies, did stunts and training for actors and stuntmen in many others, and was actually introduced to the movie business by Arnold, who knew him from when they used to do bodybuilding competitions together.

Low Down Dirty Amusement
5 December 2004 | by (Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

I found this movie to be quite over the top. Sure, the mass destruction is reminiscent of the Blues Brothers. Sure, the action and hype is quite over-rated. That's what makes Keenan Ivory Wayans the talent that he is. I find that I like to watch this movie when I am down in the dumps and in need of a distraction.

Jada Pinkett (later Smith) shines in this role. I have a sneaking suspicion that she's quite a lot like this character in real life. She made this movie, and I think it launched her for future good acting roles. Girlfriend doesn't ride Will's coatails, she's established on her own in my book.

The characters in the movie needed to be taken at face value, that was all they were worth. If you took an instant dislike to any of them, you were supposed to. The plot is a no brainer, and the jokes were quite funny even if you view this movie excessively. You WILL catch yourself wandering around saying lines from the movie....a true mark of a decent film.

I recommend it for a burst of energy on an otherwise boring weeknight. Happy viewing.
