Goofs

Carl's father-in-law introduces himself as "Jim Hunt, Petty Chief U.S. Navy, retired." There is no such thing as a "Petty Chief" rank in any service. The correct Navy ranks are Chief Petty Officer, Senior Chief Petty Officer, or Master Chief Petty Officer. See more »

Quotes

Peter Blaylock: Where does religion come from? It comes from fear. Belief in the supernatural arose to protect us from the frightening unknown. Whether it be volcanoes, thunder, lightning, earthquake, death, evil, somewhere along the line the supernatural became God, and the unknown became Satan.

Reasonable dark-comedy
30 April 2013 | by (Birmingham, England) – See all my reviews

This is one of those films that don't appear much on paper and you watch when you have exhausted all other avenues. I had never heard of the film and it appears to have had a very limited cinema release. I therefore wasn't expecting much.

I was surprised as the cast list which boasts an impressive array of talent. Pierce Brosnan, Jennifer Connolley, Greg Kinnear, Marisa Tomei and Ed Harris are all quality actors and it would take a particularly bad script for this to be a turkey.

This is a dark comedy and it doesn't always work, the plot is pretty flimsy and at times especially early on it drags a bit but once it hits its stride there are plenty of dark comedic moments as Greg Kinnear (an excellent performance) goes on the run.

This film probably won't be anything you haven't seen before but it is pretty entertaining and worth at least one watch.
