Did You Know?


After Jimmie and Paul take Gabriella to the Mexican restaurant, Jimmie's arm is shown him wearing a bandage when they're inside the car at Paul's house. That was because a scene in which Jimmie is attacked by an assassin at the Mexican restaurant was deleted. See more »


When driving around in the Crown Victoria patrol car, the vehicle has LED lights in the grill, back window, and one dual light attached with suction cups in the front windshield on the dashboard. In later scenes, the dash light is missing. See more »

Much Better Than Expected
27 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

I saw this with my 15-year-old son, and we both laughed a lot, as did the nearly-full mid- afternoon theater audience. I have rarely seen such a stark disconnect between some scathing reviews and actual audience reaction.

Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan have excellent chemistry. Morgan is consistently funny, and Willis goofs nicely on his own image. Sean William Scott is a hoot! You have to see his one- of-a-kind performance to believe it, and don't miss the credits!

Yes, it's no masterpiece, plot, action, or comedy-wise. The primacy of Beverly Hills Cop and Die Hard in the action-comedy pantheon is undisturbed. No new creative ground is broken here. Kevin Pollack, unfortunately, is given little to do. Adam Brody was 10 times better in Mr. & Mrs. Smith, in a far smaller role. But on the whole, the movie does what one asks of an action-comedy: it makes you laugh many times, and it does not bore you.

Ana de la Reguera is also an unexpected treat. Bonita y deliciosa.

Me and my son give it two thumbs up!
