Director George Huang was convinced to make this film by Robert Rodriguez. Huang used to work for Columbia Pictures, which acquired the distribution rights for Rodriguez' film El mariachi (1992) in 1991. The two met and Huang shared some of his would-be movie stories with Rodriguez, who - as documented in his memoir, "Rebel Without a Crew" - told Huang that he should simply "go out and make a movie."

Kevin Spacey, perhaps the finest actor on the planet, is brilliant as usual in his hilarious turn as Buddy Ackerman, one of the nastiest characters that you'll ever see anywhere on film.

Watch this movie if you want to laugh your head off, or if you simply want to see a legend in the making at the top of his game, yet again.
