Kevin Smith had been a fan of Bruce Willis for years prior to working with him. Willis, after acting with Smith on Live Free or Die Hard (2007), told him that he was interested in being one of his films. Despite all this, it was Warner Bros. who suggested casting Willis as Jimmy Monroe. See more »
In the car chase sequence through the cemetery, Jimmy shoots out the back of the car and the assailants shoot into it, however the glass can be seen to only have one small hole in the middle of it. See more »

Smith has yet again gone out of his way to make this movie truly awful. Even for the 80's cop movie "homage" this is trying to be, it really is disappointing. The dialogue is slow, unfunny, and just flat out dumb most of the time. Smith seems to have put little to no effort into doing anything original with the buddy cop movie and it really shows.
If i could un-watch this movie I certainly would. This was a huge disappointment and waste of time! Tracy Morgan plays the "dumb" guy terribly. Well, he actually plays it too well and it becomes very annoying very quickly.
Bruce Willis is of course playing the same role he has played in almost all of his movies. The straight stern tough guy. It is nothing new, nothing original, and certainly nothing fun to watch.
