Several actors flub lines throughout the film. Possibly the most noticeable example is when Harry thanks Sue by saying, "Good lookin', you've been... you took care of business." See more »

Quotes

Al Connors: I've got the money, the coke and a picture of your daughter. There's one more thing I need.
Harry De Bauld: What is that, Al?
Al Connors: That's all the information you can give me on this Big Daddy fella. Who is he?
Harry De Bauld: When you say 'who is he?' you're talking about what he looks like and where he hangs out. Nobody knows, Al. That's one thing we can't tell you much about. Very few people ever see Big Daddy. The only thing I can tell you though, he's about six feet two inches tall, has blond, curly hair and, man, you talking ...

Wow.
16 June 2003 | by (Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

This movie left me in awe. No, not because it was good. This is the perfect example of a bad movie. I had never seen a movie as bad as this before. Ever. The cinematography was non-existent. The lighting was terrible. I have seen better acting from first grade children in a school play. There were somes scenes when it looked like the actors were reading from cue cards. The editing was awful. Some scenes seemed interlaced with others. This movie could only be watched for two reasons. Those reasons are to see what a truly bad movie is, and to appreciate the B movies. This movie could be called an F movie. My vote is ½ out of **** (or perhaps ¼ out of ****)
