Storyline

Late at night, in an unnamed U.S. city, a solitary man sits at a bus stop. A pregnant woman runs by, pursued by a man with a gun. With reluctance, the man at the bus stop rescues her and assists with the baby's delivery, while additional pursuers fire at them, including the gang's particularly nasty leader, an intuitive man named Hertz. Our hero, known only as Smith, determines to save the child and find out why Hertz wants the baby dead. At a local bordello, he tries to employ a lactating hooker to watch the child, but things quickly escalate, and this makeshift family is soon on the run. Heavy metal music calms the baby. Why? A laboratory, gun factory, and presidential campaign all figure in Smith's quest for the child's safe deliverance. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

In the car scene where Smith shoots out the windshield of his car and the van full of assassins the glass breaks into a few large pieces which easily fall out of his way. Car (and van) windshields are made out of two pieces of glass with a sheet of polymer or laminate between. This means that when broken (even if shot) the windshield will break into many small pieces, but these pieces will be held in position by the laminate. The glass used in the two vehicles for this scene are obviously not 'real' windshields. Furthermore, in a head-on collision of two vehicles traveling at the depicted speed, Smith should have been propelled all the way through the van's cabin, probably hitting his head against the back door.

Hilarious comedy, unrealistic action
17 September 2007 | by badger_gal29See all my reviews

People who rate this movie poorly obviously do not realize that it is a comedy. If you go into it hoping for awesome action and realistic events, prepare to be disappointed. The entire movie is just completely ridiculous action sequences that not only would never happen but never COULD happen in any possible way. It's as if someone took every action scene that got cut from other action movies for being too outrageous or physically impossible and jammed them all into one movie. That is what makes it so funny! There were scenes with no dialogue that had me rolling with laughter. There aren't any dull moments either with someone getting shot pretty much every 10 seconds. The movie was not what I was expecting, but ended up SO much better. It's just plain fun!
