Storyline

The governor of a Mexican state is assassinated. Soon after, junior executive Daryl Chase's life turns upside down: after he flags a huge transfer of funds from a Mexican account as probably illegal, he's attacked in his apartment, rescued by a CIA agent, finds his secretary shot dead, and witnesses two cops get killed. He calls the CIA guy who tells him to grab the next train to Mexico. Leaving Manhattan, Daryl can't shake a jive-talking street punk named Freddy, and soon he's traded clothes with Freddy to escape the police. Within days, his girlfriend, his boss, his client, Freddy, the FBI, and the dead governor's dog are tangled in a web of deceit and danger. Who's who? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Incredibly Funny!
24 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have heard others criticize this film for it's campy humor and the sometimes outrageous action scenes but it is one of my favorite films and I cannot recommend it too highly. I am typically not fond of the use of tacky humor but this passes all of my requisites, but from an objective standpoint I am able to see where others might be quickly annoyed with the humor and scripting of this film. The acting could be more convincing but the story itself is not convincing so it's hard to condemn the film for that. You have to go into the plot with a willingness to suspend disbelief, but it doesn't fit into the same bracket as films like Joe Dirt as far as humor is concerned. Other than some potentially objectionable language I think this film is a great bet especially if you need a good laugh. It should also be noted that the people that I know personally who did not enjoy this film went into it with more serious expectations. It is important to realize before you watch that the plot does not center around the action so much as it does the humor. I have owned it since it came out and rarely do I enjoy a film more than twice but this is one I have watched twice a week on occasions when I have needed cheering up! Obviously rent before you purchase. Orlando Jones and Eddie Griffin both do an incredible job and I can't even imagine what the outtakes would be like. That would be something to see!
