The criminal Carlos breaks out from prison and her pimp Felonious Spinks drives the runaway car. Carlos seeks revenge against the criminal Henrique, who raped and introduced her to prostitution. The smalltime crook Johnny is married with Jane, but he is still fancy Olivia that is the love of his life and will marry his best friend Bill while Jane organizes a shower for Olivia. Johnny's father is the pedophile Mr. Grand that sells abducted teenagers to Henrique. Mr. Grand has injured his wife when she asked for the divorce and now she is crippled.

Did You Know?

Goofs

In his opening voice-over, the character Johnny Grand (Ron Livingston) attributes the quote "Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive," to William Shakespeare. Sir Walter Scott actually wrote that in Marmion in 1808, about 192 years after Shakespeare died. This probably is the quote most often erroneously attributed to Shakespeare. See more »

do not watch this movie!
20 July 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

even a review would be a waste of time, but i'll give you the important bits: this is one of the most poorly written films i have ever seen.

the fact that so many decent actors/comedians are in it is beyond me. i can't explain how they suckered these guys into regurgitating the terrible dialog.

the story goes nowhere, takes forever, and basically sucks.

no one is like-able, there is no hero, no bad guy, just nothing.

it is a vapid, useless, and moronic film, and THE ABSOLUTE WORST attempt at making a dark comedy i have ever seen in my entire life.

from the script, to the editing, to the directing, absolutely everything is painful.

please, save yourself, do not watch this movie.
