Goofs

In the hotel, Jake says the briefcase contains approx $250,000. There are 10 stacks of bills with two bundles in each stack. A bundle of bills contains 50 bills. So that would be a total of 100 bills/stack or 1000 total. The largest bill in circulation is the $100, thus no more than $100,000 could be in the briefcase (most people don't realize just how difficult it would be for a single person to carry large sums of money like $1,000,000 or $10,000,000 and how many suit/briefcases it would take to have such in "small, unmarked bills" but yet movie characters seem to be able to do so easily in even small bags.)

A really good movie
7 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

I don't know why some people slander this movie. They should get some antidepressants or something - somethings not right with these people anyway.

This movie is well made, has good actors doing a great job, interesting (but somewhat predictable) plot! It has pretty much everything you want from a nice action/comedy movie and I certainly enjoyed the movie a lot.

I almost gave it a seven but I'm a cheap b*stard - and even if it's closer to a seven than six - it falls just short of it... =)

I just made up my mind - why the h*ll not...
