Trivia

The license plate of Jimmy's Limo reads "DBLDN11." This is a reference to a blackjack strategy articulated in Swingers (1996) that one should always double down on an 11. See more »

Goofs

When Bobby, Ricky, Horrace and Ruiz make contact with The Welshman in the nightclub, a very conspicuous female extra wearing a tight sky blue sweater and a black bandana is visible behind the Welshman and the others (i.e. she appears to be on both sides of the club). See more »

Slow comedy about a couple of meatballs ...
30 December 2003 | by (Glen Ellen, CA) – See all my reviews

... who want to get in good with a local mobster.

Bobby and Ricky are a couple of losers working crummy jobs in Los Angeles. One day, Max hires them to go to New York to make a drop for him, giving them their big chance to move up in the world. Bobby's a hothead who's doing it to help his girlfriend quit her stripping job, Ricky's a major screwup who doesn't know when to shut his mouth.

No point going into the plot deeply - there isn't much point to this story anyway. The two blunder their way through the job and make out alright in the end. The ending is supposed to make us feel good about the pair.

Jon Favreau directs and stars as Bobby. Comedy is all about timing, and the director just doesn't have a good sense of it. The jokes tend to either slip by barely noticed or they hammer you over the head til it hurts. Vince Vaughn is particularly annoying as Ricky. His talkative imbecile schtick wears thin about a third of the way through the movie.

Mildly entertaining at best.
