Over multiple takes of the Vinnie "beatdown" scene, Les Mahoney (Mike Case) got a bruise on his ribs from Dale Shane (Vinnie) hitting him in the same spot. Les got his revenge when they filmed the scene where he punches Vinnie, giving him a bruise in roughly the same place. Not intentionally, of course : ) See more »

Mike Case in: The Big Kiss off. Good, fun stuff! If you like good old fashioned Humphrey Bogart type Private Detective movies, you should definitely watch this. And even if that's not your thing, no problem because it's still worth watching! What this movie does is brings something fresh to that sub genre. This movie has a really great comedic aspect to it. Lots of wit. It has a fun storyline. "The Big Kiss Off" is the type of movie that is extremely engaging right from the get go which is important for this style. And one of the great things about this is that they clearly embraced their independent film making freedom! Something not enough independent film makers do today. This is the kind of movie that really does deserve some attention. It is available on Amazon Prime for anyone who is subscribed to that platform. Give it a chance and see what you think.
