Goofs

When a hostage is shot, the "blood" that spurts out of the wound is clear, rather than red; evidently the blood pack that was used was accidentally prepared without coloring. See more »

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."
[Gordon looks at Jimmy with no response]
Jimmy Dial: A good... Aw, come on. Gordy. I had everybody rolling with that this morning.

Waste of Deirdre Imershein's talent
8 November 1998 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

This movie is basically your typical action packed movie. Bad guys enter the story, bad guys create a huge mess, good guys intervene & win in the end. Nothing new. Most of the bad guys had a fair share of action, be it gun battles or hand to hand combat. Hence I was quite disappointed when Deirdre Imershein's character Natasha barely did anything. As I recall, all she did was shoot one lady & eventually get shot by Anna Nicole Smith's character. Come on, she's supposed to be some femme fatale so the least the directors could've done was to have her engage in some hand to hand action. Perhaps bash up Nicole or something. As for Nicole, I feel that any amateur could've done a better job & the only reason why she was chosen, was because of her <ahem> assets. The only thing I liked about this movie was Deirdre Imershein. The rest of it was SAD!
