Kevin Smith and Bruce Willis did not get along well at all on set. Reports surfaced that Willis disliked Smith's direction, felt he didn't interact enough with the cast, and disagreed with Smith's use of marijuana. Smith has counter-claimed that working with Willis was "soul crushing", stating that Willis often refused to listen to direction, was occasionally combative and was generally unpleasant on and off-set.

Happy anniversary Jim.

You wanna see the expression on my face? The expression you're gonna see on my face...

I saw this with my 15-year-old son, and we both laughed a lot, as did the nearly-full mid- afternoon theater audience. I have rarely seen such a stark disconnect between some scathing reviews and actual audience reaction.
Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan have excellent chemistry. Morgan is consistently funny, and Willis goofs nicely on his own image. Sean William Scott is a hoot! You have to see his one- of-a-kind performance to believe it, and don't miss the credits!
Yes, it's no masterpiece, plot, action, or comedy-wise. The primacy of Beverly Hills Cop and Die Hard in the action-comedy pantheon is undisturbed. No new creative ground is broken here. Kevin Pollack, unfortunately, is given little to do. Adam Brody was 10 times better in Mr. & Mrs. Smith, in a far smaller role. But on the whole, the movie does what one asks of an action-comedy: it makes you laugh many times, and it does not bore you.
Ana de la Reguera is also an unexpected treat. Bonita y deliciosa.
Me and my son give it two thumbs up!
