In the final scene in the Hummer, the advertising is clearly posted over all the windows of the vehicle, bar the windscreen, in the next shot, from inside the Hummer, the windows are clear, with no advertising visible. See more »
I didn't laugh once for the last hour of the movie. The preview looked promising: the premise seemed original and edgy, and even in the event that the plot fell through, there also appeared to be ample sex scenes to hold your interest. Wrong. The acting was poor all around, especially on Beau Bridges' part - WAY over-the-top. The writing was dull; there is scarcely a funny joke to be found... predictable, lowest-common-denominator humor. The plot is full of holes and loose ends. Basically the film falls flat on its face. In a word: Boring. There was not a single joke that I didn't see coming from a mile away....I felt like I'd seen this movie a hundred times already. And in case you're wondering - the "sex scenes" are phony and PG-13. Could have maybe, somehow, been made into something cool....but it wasn't. Skip it!
