Trivia

When Frank is buying the AK-47, the dealer describes it as "The very best there is. When you absolutely, positively got to kill every motherf****r in the room, accept no substitutes." This is the same way Samuel L. Jackson's character describes an AK-47 in the beginning of the Quentin Tarintino film "Jackie Brown". See more »

When the cop catches them sleeping he asks for registration and ID. When he hands it back it is only the ID with no registration. See more »

Quotes

Roxy: Who you're killing next? Do you take requests? Because I was thinking maybe some Kardashians, my gym coach. People who give high fives. Really, any jock. Twihards. People who talk about punk rock. Who else really rips my cock off?
Frank: Get off the bed!
Roxy: Oh, Mormons and other religious assholes who won't let gay people be married. And adult women who call their tits the girls.

"No one has any shame anymore, and we're supposed to celebrate it."
18 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bobcat Goldthwait's latest feature as writer & director is a hilarious & articulately written black comedy commentary on contemporary American culture, or lack thereof. Yes, mass media's influence on the devolution of society has been tackled before (Oliver Stone's Natural Born Killers & Euros Lyn's Fifteen Million Merits, for example) and the script has it's issues (which are plausibility/suspension of disbelief related IMO) but the dialogue does have monologues & diatribes that I think really do shine. The acting is FTW, and the whole small budget meets meaningful repartee feel of the piece threw me back to Mark Osbourne's 2000 film "Dropping Out". Most definitely catch it if you can! 8D
