Goofs

When Simon discovers Sandi in his bathtub, the soap bubbles do not hide the fact that she is wearing a flesh colored bra while bathing. The camera cuts to Simon and when it returns to Sandi, the soap suds are higher up near her neck and hiding the bra. The focus returns to Simon and when it switches back once more to Sandi, the soap bubbles are again lower on her body with the flesh colored bra readily visible. See more »

Stupidly watchable.
24 November 2006 | by windupatheistSee all my reviews

Thank Zeus for B movies, a realm where the 80's never died. A place where elite do-gooder mercenaries, secret underground death-matches, and cops who play by their own rules all live on. I don't think Strike Force had any cops who played by their own rules, but then it wasn't a cop movie. I'm sure if it was, it would, if you catch my drift. It's that sort of flick.

Anyway, despite being terrible, I couldn't stop watching this movie. William Forsythe (who also has a writing credit for this one) manages to convey more gravity than the movie deserves, and the forgettable plot chugs along at a reasonable pace with such blithe absurdity that you can't look away.

Some guy: "I don't even know your names."

William Forsythe, with utter and complete seriousness: "We're called the Librarians."

I can't explain it. You'll have to see it. I almost fell out of my chair laughing. This inspired a bit of an exchange between my dad and I as we watched.

"We're... the Caterers!" "We're the Beauticians!" "We're called the Veterinarians!"

Anyway, if you find this on cable or you're hard up for something to rent, go ahead and give this a shot. It's dumb, but it's more amusing than it should be.
