Quotes

Jack Singer: [trying to remember how his parachute works] Let's see... I pull this one first?
Roy Bacon: No, son. You pull this one, the yellow one. That's your main chute. Then if that chute don't open, what you do is reach down there and pull the red one. That there is your auxiliary chute.
Jack Singer: Yellow then red?
Roy Bacon: You got it.
Jack Singer: Okay... let's just say that I get a little flustered when I'm hurling through space and... what happens if I pull the red one first?
Roy Bacon: Oh, well then neither chute will open. You'll end up on the ground ...

Funny and original
31 October 2001 | by thirdiSee all my reviews

Like in "Guarding Tess", I think this is where Nicolas Cage is at his best, although this one takes the cake as far as his comedies go.

A well-written, well-acted all around, original movie with some truly hilarious moments and enough drama and complexity to make it a solid, worth-your-while experience.

James Caan is perfect as the love-stricken gangster, and his object of affection, Sara Jessica Parker, is also great as the fiance who slowly begins to come around to his advances. (She's also quite easy to look at I might add).

Everything goes wrong for Cage, as he races across hell and high water trying to catch up with the girl he wants to marry, but of course wacky high-jinx ensues. Hey, if nothing else, you can't go wrong with Las Vegas and Hawaii as your two main locations. A very good, funny film.
