When Nick (Timothy Olyphant) is talking to Cliff (Steve Zahn) about his past life events, he references a dictator's palace (00:30:35) that has a lock-box. In that box he has 'Avenger' memorabilia (00:31:49). The specific one he mentions is 'Iron Man' (00:31:48). Olyphant was considered for the role of Iron Man (2008). Subsequently, Kale (Chris Hemsworth) would later become 'Thor' in the adaption of the Marvel comics and again in The Avengers (2012) movie. See more »

A solid, fast paced B-thriller with winking (and surprising) sense of humor, A Perfect Getaway is not as much of a stiff genre exercise as the ads may make it seem. It is true, there is a final twist, but it falls in line with the rest of the film: a slightly off-kilter, audacious, but entertaining endnote. As an exercise of set up and payoff, both halves of the film work fairly well on their own terms, but I cannot help but wish that the first half had a bit more palpable Hitchcockian tension and suspense instead of "Scream"-like rib nudging . Nevertheless, this is involving enough and thrilling enough to be worth at least the price of a matinée, providing that your willing to suspend your proverbial disbelief.
