When Walter goes back to Harvey's trailer to explain what he found at Otis' gas station, Herb mentions that the second victim Nate wore false teeth. Later on when Nick and Hap go to investigate further, Hap picks up a set of scorched dentures. See more »


At one point, near the beginning of the movie, there is a very short outside view of a building. The movie labels it as the "Texas Police Department", but pausing the movie or looking closely you can see that above the the door, to the right of the garage exit, it says "L A P D" in big, white lettering. It looks like the scene was taken from another movie, "Blue Streak", with Martin Lawrence. See more »

This Movie Is Awful
25 January 2007 | by pitorican95See all my reviews

I saw an advanced screening of this movie and it definitely isn't as good as the first one with The Rock (Dwayne Johnson). The first one was a really good movie. Johnny Knoxville made the movie funny and the villain was very cool and a good actor. Not to mention The Rock, just about anything he's in is a good movie. I didn't think the sequel was going to be good but I figured it would at least be a little interesting because it's the sequel to an awesome movie. But I was disappointed. It's very boring, hardly any action, the acting definitely isn't the best, and it's really country. It's just like a long episode of Chuck Norris except, I've seen episodes of Chuck Norris that are more interesting than this movie. I wouldn't pay more than five dollars for this movie. maybe ten but i would recommend renting it before you buy it. I watched this movie out of curiosity, because i liked the first one. If you liked the first one too, then you'll be disappointed with this one and it has nothing to do with the first one so I wouldn't buy this movie if I were you unless you find it on the clearance or sales rack.
