Trivia

During pre-production, the film was originally supposed to carry a hard R rating, but after deliberations, the studio had to tone down the film's script to PG-13. This meant changing the plot, dialogue, and characters. John August was hired as a "script doctor" to make these changes. See more »

Goofs

Quotes

Miles Logan: [talking to Deacon] I know you don't want to go to jail in Mexico because nobody wants to go to jail in Mexico. They put all kinds of burritos in your ass.

very good
23 April 2003 | by shakey_jake53See all my reviews

I dont know why this movie is hated by so many people. It's funny, action packed and Martin Lawrence and the rest of the cast give good performances. Sure it's pretty unbelievable but so are most movies out there. Also, the film has a solid car chase scene at the end which is a solid way to end a fine film. The opening heist scene is also pretty good as well, a good way to start the film. Also the shootout at the grocery store is very funny, as well as several other scene's. Highly Recommended, for anyone who likes action-comedies. 4/5
