Storyline

The governor of a Mexican state is assassinated. Soon after, junior executive Daryl Chase's life turns upside down: after he flags a huge transfer of funds from a Mexican account as probably illegal, he's attacked in his apartment, rescued by a CIA agent, finds his secretary shot dead, and witnesses two cops get killed. He calls the CIA guy who tells him to grab the next train to Mexico. Leaving Manhattan, Daryl can't shake a jive-talking street punk named Freddy, and soon he's traded clothes with Freddy to escape the police. Within days, his girlfriend, his boss, his client, Freddy, the FBI, and the dead governor's dog are tangled in a web of deceit and danger. Who's who? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

4.8!?
28 March 2009 | by andre_rd02See all my reviews

I am aware that this is NOT an exceptional film. There are flaws, there are clichés and there is an extremely happy ending.

The plot is not mind-bending either, it is, at the most, an alright plot.

However, it is not the storyline that makes this movie special. It is deemed for being unique, different, and incredibly entertaining. Eddie Griffin (aka Freddy Tiffany) is pure comedy, along with Dolores which becomes a signature symbol of the movie.

All in all, not a perfect a movie. It is, however, a great film for a lazy Sunday afternoon. 7/10
