Annie Bean: You don't know that. You don't know what I'm thinking about.
Yul Perrkins a.k.a. Charles Bronson: [in a whisper] Lautner.
Yul Perrkins a.k.a. Charles Bronson: Okay, I don't know the specifics, but I know it's some kind of useless racket that's keeping you from concentrating.

such fun
23 July 2013 | by sstoSee all my reviews

this movie is a lot of fun! the very best merit certainly is the dialog. there are so many good lines, so many hilarious moments - the often awkward dialog though is simply the winner. just to watch and listen to a flood of meaningless and out-of-context lines in the most inappropriate moments of the action is making this movie a candidate for constant rewind-replay scenario (to put it in the streamline of the movie's chatline).

of course the lines are not meaningless - the dialog seems very carefully written so that every word and expression - bites! awesome, and source of good fun.

the driving sequences are pretty good and intense as well. the characters and their interactions make for surprising turns, which simply enriches the 'viewing pleasure' :D 8 out of 10 very good, professional production - quality 'comedy' - enjoy
