One of the extras
25 February 2012 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I can't believe it.... Over 20 years ago I was stopped at the Pathtrain in Hoboken, being asked whether I would like to be an extra in a movie.... Over the years I had been looking for this movie, and finally found it today.

The theater scene at the beginning is the one, I "starred" in..... it was great fun and I remember the line "everybody freeze - police" from back then.

Have ordered it online to watch with the kids :-) It gets 10 out of 10 from me.... just because I am in it (or may have been cut out.... who knows)
