Did You Know?


André Benjamin had a role that spoofed Cillian Murphy's character in Red Eye (2005). The scene was when Cindy (Anna Faris) and Brenda (Regina Hall) were in an airport to fly to the Village, Andre's character pulled a taco out of this coat and offered a bite to Cindy, who declines. His line was, "If you don't eat the taco, your dad will die." The footage was reportedly shot but never used in the theatrical cut. See more »

OK - so its not great art!
11 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

Its pointless trying to analyse this film as some reviewers have obviously tried to do here. Its not hilarious by any means but it does pass an amusingly enjoyable 80 minutes of time. The gags are mostly clichéd and predictable, there's lots of tired old slapstick but when there's nothing else on TV (which is why I watched this) it certainly fits the bill. As for the appearance of 'Michael Jackson' in the film, I'm still laughing every time I think about it - heaven knows how they got away with it, but its certainly a funny moment!! Im' glad that I had seen all the films that this tries to spoof and the re-creation of the sets for War of the Worlds is fantastic. Its so close to the original.
