Trivia

When Max and Stan are fishing on the boat, Max catches a shark, once Stan touches it and finds out it is still alive, he shoots it several times while telling it the Miranda rights. The bullets should have gone through it and penetrated the hull of the ship. In the next shot, they are pulling into the dock with seemingly no issues with the bullet penetrations. See more »

Goofs

When Max is 'gassing' Stan in the Suburban, he connects the gas to the AC refrigerant system which is a closed system. It would be impossible for the gas to get into the air vents. See more »

Quotes

Stan Lloyd: The world is divided up between people who like to watch the sunset and those who don't.
Stan Lloyd: [pauses] People like you are never happy. You're anxious, type-A, egocentric perfectionists who can't sit still and die alone with a million bucks and a thousand regrets. Now, people who can relax, enjoy the sunset, hold hands at the end of the day... they're the happy ones.

Well acted entertaining thriller without style
16 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

This is a somewhat entertaining cat and mouse thriller with Brosnan, Hayek and Harrelson at the top of their game. The film starts out promisingly enough with a diamond heist which is more slapstick than suspenseful.

After the heist Harrelson follows the pair to an island where he believes they plan another big job. As the two male characters get more closely acquainted throughout the film we start to wonder who's tricking who.

Brosnan displays rare emotion in this film. Harrelson escapes his Cheers role by excellently portraying the many sides of what would have been a simple character.Hayek doesn't miss a chance to show off her body, and Don Cheadle's villain was superb. The only problem with that character was that we didn't see enough of him.

The film has some nice scenery and entertaining scenes, particularly the shark capture.Rush hour director Ratner has made a great film, which only really lacks style and good pacing. this film would have been better handled in the reins of, say, Steven Soderbergh.

But nonetheless, a very funny enjoyable film which will please fans of the cast and crew, as well as the movie-going public. It's not up to the standard of Oceans's eleven yet it beats the likes of Ocean's 12. Any fan of the comedy/thriller genre should go see this film, but I will be looking more forward to Rush Hour 3.
