Trivia

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.

After the bad guys try to kill Shame while he is driving the jeep, he uses the jeeps 4 wheel drive to drive over their car from front to back. He then backs his jeep into the back of their car. He pulls forward, so he can ram them again. And suddenly the bad guys car has turned 90 degrees to the right. Shame then backs into the side of their car sending them rolling off the cliff. Before he backs into them for the second time, they should have still been rear to rear. See more »

Put the kids to bed before you watch it...
28 June 2001 | by (Akron, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Considering that Keenan Ivory Wayans is a comedian, I was impressed with the way that he handled this action-comedy which he starred in and directed. A not so far cry away from his comedic success with his "blaxploitation" spoof "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka", Keenan manages to fare well with good action sequences and stick a lot of funny s*** along the way. Jada Pinkett lives up to comedic expectations as the sexy but tough assistant to Shame as Peaches. It's a good action-comedy to rent, but put the kids to bed before you watch it. The movie has plenty of violence, adult content and plenty of raw language.
