When eating with Niko, Marty, and Mark the night before a fight, Scott Voss gets pied in the face with a cherry pie. The remnants of the pie are shown in one shot under his nose, then it flips to another shot and is under his nose and on his chin, then flips back and is only under his nose again. See more »
Finally, a Kevin James film I enjoyed all the way to the end.
I loved "King of Queens" and I think Kevin James is a very talented comedic actor, but until this film, he hadn't made a film where he was the star that I could really get behind. Each of his past flicks had him in some unlikeable loser role with a problem nobody cared about. This one figured some things out in how to make him likable and fun to watch. I don't want to give away too much on this film as you may see some of the plot points coming from a mile away, but this is just a nice feel-good comedy. It's not trying to be something more than that. By the way, former professional MMA fighter, Bas Rutten steals every scene he's in. Way to go Bas!
