Trivia

A major influence on the film was Die Hard (1988) which is director Jorma Taccone's favorite movie. Taccone actually located and used the prop C-4 explosives from that movie for action sequences in this one. In addition, Val Kilmer and Powers Boothe were both told in pre-production meetings with Will Forte and Taccone to act "like you're in a Joel Silver-produced film in 1988." See more »

User Reviews

 
One of the most underrated comedies of the past ten years.
27 June 2014 | by rexxmantoothSee all my reviews

I have watched this movie more times than I can count. It is a little rough around the edges and unappealing from first glance but when given a real chance will not let down. This movie really grows on you with multiple viewings and is sure to do the same to anyone with an open mind. The first term that comes to mind when describing this movie is "cult classic." This movie is raunchy in all the right ways but balances itself out with silly humor as well. Will Forte does a great job with this movie by giving it a facade of half-wit humor and making fun of itself in subtle and also obvious ways. In short this movie is has a deeper humor than people give it credit for.
