When John Candy and Eugene Levy's characters arrive at the warehouse for work, Tony Lister's character gives them two Detex time clocks. These are commonly used in the security industry to show a security guard actually walked their "rounds" while on duty. How it works is the guard carries this clock while walking around the location they're protecting. They punch the clock with small keys, which are hanging at different locations around the protected site. Each key is numbered corresponding to the certain location, and when it's put into the clock the guard is carrying it literally punches the key number onto a small piece of paper inside the clock. This will show when and where the guard was at during their security rounds. See more »

Armed and Dangerous is one of John Candy's best films! Eugene Levy, Meg Ryan, Brion James, Robert Loggia, James Tolkan, Kenneth McMillan, and Tom Lister Jr. were all good. I loved the performance Lister and Candy did together! I don 't like to make fun of anybody but it was so funny every time Candy would make fun of him and I loved Lister doing his Zeus Trademark in the film! If are a fan of John Candy and the above cast mention and love hilarious action packed comedies with good music then I strongly recommend that you watch this classic movie soon!
