Where do I start? It's not you. Well actually it is you. Look, I'm just not... I'm not attracted to you anymore. I need space. You kinda... you kinda gross me out. In the beginning it was different. In the beginning, you were better. But then I got to know you real well, and I came to realize... that you're a fat idiot.

After the credits are finished, a mailman brings a letter to the hillbilly whose gas station was robbed. The letter is marked "Hillbilly Motherfucker", just as T. called him in the movie. Inside is a few hundred dollars cash. In the cut version this is changed to "Hillbilly at the gas station". See more »
Usually I hate 'buddy' movies. But I like road movies, too. This a combination of those two, and the two sub-genres mixed together made a great combination. Martin Lawrence had lots of funny lines, and Tim Robbins provided some great slapstick comedy (The bit when his shoes caught on fire was hilarious). The ending was a bit weak, but still satisfying. The whole film was good, and better than I expected it to be.
