Trivia

The fairy tale, Jack and the Beanstalk, is referenced in this movie. Gary says, "You don't blame the guy who sold the idiot magic beans. You blame the idiot who traded his cow for the magic beans." Sonny replies with, "That's not what happened in the story, the magic beans worked!" See more »

Goofs

When returning to Los Compos De Oro with the newly-kidnapped Morgan, the second aerial shot of them on the highway shows Sonny's yellow Hummer driving on the left side of the road (and the random vehicle traveling the opposite direction driving on their left side of the road), as if suddenly driving in the UK for the one camera shot.

User Reviews

 
A surprisingly good dark comedy!
26 August 2018 | by TopDawgCriticSee all my reviews

Novice director Jonathan Watson makes his 2nd directorial debut and his first full length feature film, and knocks it out of the ballpark!

This is a well written, cast and produced dark comedy with few LOL moments, but you will have a constant grin throughout, especially from the perfectly cast Danny McBride who's performance was outstanding for his character.

He, as well as the great directing along with the perfect cinematography make this film stand out and very entertaining.

The entire premise of the set location (pretty much abandoned gated communities) make this a different type of cat-and-mouse comedy thriller that is enjoyable start to finish. The pacing is great and the length is perfect.

An excellent Sunday hangover popcorn flick! A well deserved 8/10 from me
