Storyline

Four former made men, struggling to get by in a rundown Miami hotel, come up with a plot to drive out all of the young tenants that are slowly taking over the beach-front hotel and driving up their rent. Taking a man that was found dead on the beach, they arrange what appears to a mob hit and provide a note that says more killings are to occur. Unfortunately the old man they use turns out to be the senile father of a drug lord. The drug lord declares war on the killers of his father, thinking it was an action of his enemies. A stripper learns of the old men's involvement and threatens to squeal on them unless they kill her stepmother. Meanwhile, one man searches for his long-lost daughter, who is the investigating police officer, trying to divest herself from her crumb fellow officer and former boyfriend.

Trivia

Jeremy Piven stated his thoughts about sucking Carrie-Anne Moss's toes for one scene in this movie as follows: "The question I'm asked the most is 'What's it like sucking Carrie-Anne's toes?' It was tremendous. She has exquisite toes. Her feet were primed from The Matrix (1999), from a year of bouncing on them. We definitely nailed it in eight takes, and then I asked for an extra one, just in case." See more »

Goofs

When two of the gang members and the ladies are kidnapped from the retirement home, as they get in the car the weather is clear and the road is dry. However, in the next scene as they arrive at the dock the road is wet with small puddles - a clear sign that it rained between shots. See more »

24 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

I was positively intrigued to see such a wide divergence of opinion on this flick; I can't recall ever seeing such a split opinion in this space. Therefore I will offer the moderate observation that, while being far from the cleverest comedy I've seen, the movie isn't all that bad. The script is not a particularly witty effort, but the tangled web that these 4 retired hoods spin for themselves becomes progressively more intriguing. (I would note that the arson technique portrayed must be taken with about a pound of salt) The sentimental sub-plot about the missing daughter is unnecessary and dilutes the comedy (though, mercifully it's not played up very big). Altogether, not a cause for raves, but not as bad as some here say.
