Goofs

At the final showdown, the Jack of Diamonds that is facing the camera in Bonnie's collar moves from the right front to the back left of the dog's neck. This cannot be explained away by the collar slipping around its neck, since the face of the card would be facing away from the camera and into its neck if it did slide around there. See more »

Falls Short
9 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With a stellar cast like this, you expect something great, or at least good.... however, this Tarantino wanna be film falls short of expectations and leaves the viewer perplexed, bored, and disappointed.

The scenes were a little disjointed and hard to follow. The humor and satire, although very clever and funny at times, overall fell flat. There were a few lines that when you caught them made you laugh out loud.. but not enough of them and not not written in a cohesive enough style to work.

The high point was Sam Rockwell's performance which was powerful, convincing and funny, but otherwise it kinda sucked.
