Trivia

Locations signs for the shoot originally read "Urinal Cakes", but after the producers decided this may attract too much attention to the shoot, they changed them to "Houston McGregor" aptly named after the Director's, Brian A. Miller's, pet Beagle. See more »

Avoid.
20 July 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The major issue with this film is the script. Its awkward, flabby dialogue, when played out by already-mediocre actors, results in something that is painful to watch. People just don't talk to each other in the way this film portrays. Its story is (by design, it seems) completely predictable.

The sad thing is Bautista comes across as one of the better actors in this. I haven't seen any of his wrestling but I'd have the guess that his signature move was diving over a table to escape bullets.

You occasionally get some okay music (but this is a film, not an album) and the camera work and production values are generally pretty good. It looks and sounds like it should be a good film but it's really just a well-polished turd.

Avoid it. You won't get that 80 minutes back.
