Goofs

In a scene at Tankia enterprises after Michael first finds out about Tanika, Tankia is talking but if you look carefully when he turns his lips are not moving. His hands are also making odd gestures as he walks even when his associate is talking indicating that perhaps Tanika is saying something that is completely different from what we hear. See more »

Quotes
