The final scene involves Sheen throwing a basketball with great force to a basketball hoop (revealed a little later) that is a considerable distance away. The ball bounces lamely (in slow motion) on the ring/hoop - twice - but it should have bounced off with a force related to the supposed speed of its arrival. See more »

Almost a B-movie
17 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

This movie is filled with so many idiotic moments, that you wonder how it ever got made. For example, they get into the sewers from the Capitol and while they're in the sewers you can see signs pointing to various government buildings, and then they come up in the middle of the street! I highly doubt that government buildings would provide public access through the city sewer system. Anyways, I gave this a 2 instead of a 1 just because of its comic value. I laughed the whole way through at the idiocy of everyone involved in this movie.
