Did You Know?

Errors in geography: When at the bus station David is supposed to be in Washington D.C. As the cab is pulling away you see a traffic sign for US Highways 61 & 190. This intersection and the bus station are actually in Baton Rouge, LA and not in Washington D.C.See more »

Worst movie since Mr. Magoo!, 15 February 2009
Author: wyteboy2455 from United States

What the hell just happened? I sat through this movie waiting for something to happen and nothing. I am almost tempted to ask for my dollar back from Red Box for the hour and a half that I lost and will never get back. Who wrote this script and please tell me they no longer work in this field. I am normally a big fan of Cuba Gooding Jr. but his acting along with everyone else's was horrible and they should all be ashamed for having anything to do with this crap and taking people's money for watching this. And why was this movie rated R, have they changed the rating system to include boring and confusing into the R rating now. There was no violence in this movie, if there was can someone please show me where.
