When Hakim meets Wisk for the first time in the helicopter, he quotes from Shakespeare, "for when a world of men could not prevail with all their oratory, Yet hath a woman's kindness over-ruled." Wisk identifies the source of the quote as Henry IV, which Hakim confirms, but the quote is actually from Henry VI. See more »

A laugh riot
13 March 2000 | by (New England) – See all my reviews

This movie is hysterically funny. Anna Nicole Smith has about as much acting ability as a wooden rolling pin and her breasts get second and third billing but hey, it's all in good fun. There is no plot here and the action scenes are completely ludicrous, but I found myself giggling throughout the movie. I wouldn't recommend paying to rent it but if you're bored and it comes on Cinemax give it a try. It might make a good double feature with another movie I've reviewed on IMDb, DEMOLITION UNIVERSITY. They're both totally inane and filled with unintentionally hilarious dialog.
