At 40 minutes, during the fishing scene when the bucket is shot, the hole in the bucket is different than the gunshot hole, the bucket is tipped back showing it's empty.
The next scene, water is pouring out of only one side of the bucket. A gunshot at close range would have gone through the plastic bucket.
The image inside the bucket shows a catfish and only one gunshot hole "possibly".
The bucket has different levels of dirt on it between shots also. See more »
An Odd Movie Indicated for Fans of Elizabeth Hurley
Ray Pluto (Denis Leary) is a detective with a problem due to the lost of his wife and daughter. One day, he is in a fast food place, and due to a pain in his back, he is not able to avoid a massive murderer of six persons. A young boy uses his gun and kills the killer. He becomes a loser in the eyes of the police force and the public opinion and his partner (Steve Buscemi) convinces him to have a session with a chiropractor (Dr. Ann Beamer - the gorgeous and sexy Elizabeth Hurley). A complicated romance between them will grow. Meanwhile, at least two other plots happen, involving detective Pluto and other odd characters.
This movie is not totally bad, but it is impossible to label the genre. The screenplays 'shot ' everywhere: black comedy, drama, romance, and action, all of it mixed together. The result is very irregular, and there are parts enjoyable, other that could be skipped, other not resolved. It deserves to be watched at least once and is indicated for fans of the delicious Elizabeth Hurley, maybe. My vote is six.
Title(Brazil): "Um Policial em Apuros" ("A Policeman in Trouble")
