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 motherfucker 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 Tarantino film Jackie Brown (1997). See more »

Goofs

When Roxi finds Frank's Motel room and she's inside the suit bag daring Frank to commit suicide, her hair band is falling down. But in the next cut it is already fixed, although her arms are inside the bag (so she couldn't fix it herself). See more »

Quotes

Office Worker: So what about you Frank? Did you see that freak on "American Superstars" last night?
Frank: What?
Office Worker: Last night; that freak on "American Superstarz."
Frank: No... I mean yes, I saw that accidentally. I don't watch "American Superstarz"
Office Worker: You don't watch it, but you saw him. What are you too good for the show?
Frank: Yeah, I'm too good for a karaoke contest that makes stars out of people with no talent.
Office Worker: *Laugh You can't say that dude, some of those kids have real talent.

Captures our age of narcissism and stupidity
17 September 2011 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie's premiere at the Toronto Film Festival. I loved it. Bobcat Goldthwait has given us a hilarious comedy that perfectly satirizes our self-centred, celebrity-obsessed, uncritical age. Throughout the dark comedy Joel Murray delivers a perfect performance as one of the last thinking men, who has grown weary of life and society. In between the action and the comedy, Joel Murray's character delivers scathing indictments of society that had the Toronto audience break out into spontaneous applause. Besides being hilarious, this movie is really an interesting exploration of the insensitivity and thoughtlessness of modern popular culture. This movie is the antidote our "reality show," celebrity-obsessed, know-nothing-and-proud-of-it culture. The film's outlandish violence perfectly captures Horace Walpole's epigram, "This world is a comedy to those that think, a tragedy to those that feel." Unfortunately, as the movie points out, few people are now capable of either thinking or feeling.
