When Mitch and Trin pull their scam on the "Man in bed", Mitch and 2 other actors pretend to be police detectives. Ironically enough the room was full of actors who have portrayed cops (at least once) in popular movies and television shows. Rex Linn (man in bed) portrayed a Detective on "CSI: Miami". Melina Kanakeredes (Trin) portrayed a detective on CSI:NY. Shawn Doyle (Bum Cop) portrayed a detective in the movie "Frequency." Samuel Jackson (Mitch) portrayed a cop in the movie "The Negotiator."

After driving the tanker truck through town, Charly comes on a downgrade with a car in front of her. She pumps the brake pedal and it shows brake fluid leaking from a cut line. Tanker trucks (big rigs) do not use hydraulic fluid in their brake systems, they all use compressed air for braking. See more »

A small-town schoolteacher (Geena Davis) slowly begins to realize that she has suffered amnesia and really use to be a secret government assassin! Soon, there are men after her and a small-time private detective (Samuel L. Jackson).
This was action-packed, with some great special effects and really funny one-liners (especially from Jackson). Although the action may get a little silly at times, who cares? After all, aren't movies meant to be a good time?
Craig Bierko is fun as a ruthless villain. The movie itself was an all-around good time. Just don't expect to have to think too much about it because then, if you take it too seriously, then the movie actually won't be fun but stupid instead.
This movie doesn't deserve to be called stupid or any other bad name.
