Not your usual thing
13 November 2016 | by (Bracebridge Ont) – See all my reviews

This is a very violent movie but its violence is that of a Tom and Jerry cartoon. It's a farce, a satire, a send-up with lots of hidden gags and visual puns. The lead character is a timid author who writes a fictional story in the first person about an international assassin. After his agent changes the title to TRUE memoirs etc. etc., it becomes a best seller and people start thinking it's a real biography and our author/hero ends up assassinating the president of Venezuela. Why they hit on Venezuela rather than some fictional Latin American country is puzzling because it is the butt of any number of jokes, insults and clichés. Not a great movie but it's a clever plot and there are a lot of laughs.
