Take your sunglasses off.
I see better with 'em on, man.
You don't take them off, I'm gonna throw them off the overpass while they're still on your head. Go wait in the car.
Um, we're in civilization now so you can ease up just a little bit.
I'm sorry! I'd like you to wait in the car please. Take her, put her in the back.
Okay... in the trunk?
IN THE BACKSEAT! IN THE BACKSEAT!

The laserdisk/DVD versions contain the following deleted scenes.
The original trunk scene, much much longer with extra dialog, different lighting and more wriggling.

In a bizarre scene in the Adams Hotel room, Buddy and Jack talk about the feeling you get when you take a bath.

We see the rather gruesome transsexual murder scene. Ray Cruz talks to Karen who spots Glenn's broken glasses on the floor.

Putting ski masks on in the van before the Ripley job. White Boy Bob tells a story about leaving his wallet behind at a break in.
After reading (and falling for) all the hype, I rushed out to my video store and plunked down nearly $30 for this lifeless, dud of a picture. What's the big deal? Clooney and Lopez are unsympathetic, and Ving Rhames is simply wasted on this movie. I looked desperately for something to like, and found no redeeming value for this movie. It's boring, it's dull, it's unfunny, it's a waste of time and good money. There is one good thing--I got my money back.
