A huge piece of crap

I got stuck watching this film on a bus from Chiapas to Mexico City, and I felt like apologizing to everyone on the bus (most were Mexicans, of course) on behalf of the entire American entertainment industry.

The logic errors in this movie just pile one on top of the other. Why would this candidate secretly stock his campaign staff with violent militia cronies... with the one law-abiding exception being the guy who just happens to be IN CHARGE of the staff? Why is a campaign manager also a karate expert? What does the opening assassination attempt have to do with the whole rest of the movie? Why would this secret militia kill one FBI guy at his home and think that that would somehow throw the law off their tails? Why is a guy who's trying to keep himself (and his family) incognito hop on a bus and drive it down the wrong lane of a freeway? These are all questions the movie does not bother to answer.

Another question I'd like answered, though, is why Arthur Hiller makes an appearance in this movie. Did he lose a bet, or something?

The saving grace of this movie lays in the sheer pleasure you'll feel at seeing that the guy who played Mac in _Night Court_ is still getting work. 'Cause weren't you beginning to worry about him? Me too.
