Quotes

Jimmy Dial: [while patrolling in unmarked patrol car, telling joke] I cannot lie. I was humping my goat. So, the D.A. says, "But there's more to the story, isn't there, Farmer Brown?"
Gordon Wisk: Of course.
Jimmy Dial: So, Farmer Brown says, "After I finished humping my goat, the goat turned around and licked my balls." At which point, the judge turned to Farmer Brown and said, "Hey, a good goat will do that."

Anna Nicole Smith does Die Hard. Not exactly.
27 September 1998 | by (Middle Georgia, USA) – See all my reviews

Anna Nicole Smith gives a performance that comparatively makes Jayne Mansfield an Oscar winner. A disgusting rip off of Die Hard, including crawling through air ducts. While the plot wasn't remotely intended to take the viewer on an emotional roller coaster ride, Ms. Smith's only emotion seems to consist of whining. It is obvious she just read many lines from cue cards. The most telling sign of the enthusiasm of this cast was exhibited by the hostages, who when released, just sort of meander out of the building. More energy and enthusiasm is shown by most people when being seated in a dentist's chair.

The whole cast would have been better off if an earthquake collapsed the building on them. The attempted rescue would have been more intriguing.

The nude scenes were apparently just to exhibit her unnatural endowment. I found viewing her mammaries more humorous than erotic. Anna Nicole Smith strikes me as a rather pitiable creature of silicon.

I rented the movie for 50 cents locally. What a waste.
