This film made me smile a lot! A feel good buddy-movie that has a cute and quirky edge to it. Set in a run down quarter of L.A. the life of five losers is suddenly transformed when one of them falls in love with a stripper. However, many of their desperate attempts to bring together Gus and the girl of his dreams fail as they know nothing about women.
When I saw this movie I expected gag after gag but I was positively surprised as it wasn't just the subtle humor that stood out but also the way the film highlights in a sensitive way how we all have our faults. The international cast have done exceptionally well to bring these bold characters to life and the the whole undercover agent storyline was hilarious! Landau proves, despite his old age, that he can still pull it off on the big screen even with very small actions like taking a drag from a cigar. This is highly recommendable stuff!
