What's the matter, sunshine? Step in some shit?
You're an asshole, Kyle.
How do you sleep at night?
Usually naked. On one of the newer, younger employees.
Oh. That explains the smile on Bob's face. Go easy on him, he's just a janitor.

The film has its moments. It's got a rather nice plot. It's first-person commentary is interesting. Matt Dillon and Christina Applegate have both done quite well. The sequence before the bank robbery was very stylish and funny. It's sound editing is perhaps below average but the music is okay.
It's got endless plot twists in the end. After the first major twist I said to myself "Well, that's clever..." and after the second I was like "Wow! never saw this coming" and the twists continued on to a point where I got rather irritated. Plot twists are supposed to offer surprise elements in a story to see it from an entirely different point of view. But in this film, surprise is stripped off.
