Goofs

When Dr. Mennox sits down in his seat after coming out of the lavatory, he and Franklin both have cocktail glasses in the drink holder of their seats. A few seconds later when they shake hands, Dr. Mennox's drink has disappeared. The flight attendant then walks up and hands a Vodka Martini to Dr. Mennox, and a rum and Coke to Franklin. The drink glass that had been sitting next to Franklin has now mysteriously disappeared, too. See more »

Quotes

Bernard Franklin: [on cassette tape] God would have a lot more credibility if He didn't always pick crazy people to be His messengers. Franklin, sanity is wasted on the sane.

Moral ambiguity but still heartwarming?
13 September 2013 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

That is a question only you can answer. We have to root for a character that has more than one flaw though. Not that other characters portrayed in this movie are without any flaws or doubts themselves. But while it's an ensemble piece our big friend is the one who's playing front and center (tonally and picture wise).

You sometimes wish some characters would have gotten more screen time, like the landlord, who has some very funny but also very offensive things and lines to do in the movie. And while it seems that some of the things are aimed at our protagonist, it's still not the best and smartest decisions he is making during the course of his journey. Dolph Lundgren seems to have fun, but his character could have been fleshed out more. A nice little odd movie then
