Trivia

Mac says, "I'll come back for you!" twice, once to Danny Devito. This is an obvious reference to Romancing The Stone in which Danny Devito starred in and his brother in the movie yelled the same line to him. See more »

Goofs

The gang goes to see Thunder Gun Express at the TLA - Theater of the Living Arts - but when shown inside they are seated in a normal movie theater with rows of seats. The TLA, located on South Street in Philadelphia, is a live performance venue. The audience area is simply a large open space for standing. There are no seats. See more »

Allison: [listening to tape of him wooing a girl] Too bad the museum is closed on Wednesdays.
Dennis Reynolds: Who knew? I guess we can hang out here and get to know each other instead.
[door is heard closing with multiple door locks]
Allison: What's with all the locks?
Dennis Reynolds: I want you to feel safe.

A bit of structure goes a long way
7 January 2020 | by yavermbiziSee all my reviews

My overall rating of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"'s Season 7: 3/10

In a season that's otherwise very bad, my two favourite episodes seem to have something in common: they're both self-contained setpieces that spoof action movies. This episode is somewhat worse/less funny than "The Gang Gets Trapped", but it's a lot more dynamic and varied and still has more than enough laughs to be worth your while.
