Goofs

The 3rd Generation Glock 17 handgun used by Milo (and later found by Eggs) is not "made almost entirely of plastic, making it undetectable by metal detectors" as claimed. It does have a polymer frame, but the slide (top portion), barrel and internals are all made of metal that would be easily detected by a metal detector. Also, while considerably quieter, a suppressed 9mm handgun is still much louder than depicted in most movies to include this one. See more »

Man: [in recording] In a moment, when I say the number three, you will enter a state of deep relaxation. All the stresses and worries of the day will fall away, and you will feel completely relaxed. As you fall towards a feeling of tremendous well being, deeper and deeper, one... deeper, two... deeper, three

Absolutely hilarious! Applause!!!
30 January 2008 | by amfr4See all my reviews

This film is absolutely hilarious!!! I hope this film gets released in the US (I've seen it via a Hungarian DVD). Those of you in the UK, take note: The DVD is released in the UK on March 3, 2008. For anyone (anywhere in the world) seeking something to make them laugh and smile, this is an excellent choice! If this film is within your reach, by cinema or DVD, seek it out.

Writer-director Gareth Lewis provides a great story, excellently told with lots of refreshing originality, tons of laughs, and perfect casting throughout. Damian Lewis is absolutely wonderful in the lead role, displaying the perfect blend of comedy, action and romance. Hats off, bravo and well done to everyone involved in this immensely enjoyable and entertaining film! APPLAUSE APPLAUSE APPLAUSE! :-)
