Goofs

When the two protagonists are smoking a marijuana joint in the policeman's car, Silberman is passed the joint and begins to smoke it. He smokes it throughout the majority of the scene, until only about 2 centimeters remain. When he hands the joint back to Diaz at the end of the scene, there is still half a joint remaining.

Fun and happy comedy
29 September 2007 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film is about a psychiatrist becoming an unlikely hero because he got attached to do a community service in the police department.

I must say the direction is great. The film is made in a fun way, which makes it a great fast paced comedy. I like the dialog a lot as well, the psychiatrists lines are particularly witty. The most memorable scene is when the cop forces a confession from the psychiatrist's wife, that is so hilaroius1 Cops really know what they are doing! One thing though, is that the film does not portray Argentinian military well, I wonder if they had any problems in showing the film in Argentina. To sum up, this film is a great and fun comedy, it surely will make you happy!
