Goofs

When Ben Affleck's character talks about all the things he cannot do in the US anymore, he mentions Pittsburgh and its famous Primanti brothers restaurant chain, notably the specialty sandwiches they make. He pronounces it Pri-MAHN-ti, with the AN letters sounding like 'on'. Any big fan of the restaurant chain would know the proper pronunciation is Prim-AN-ti, with the AN sound similar to the name "Ann". See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Richie Furst: Everyone gambles. They may call it something else, like the stock market, or real estate. But make no mistake, if you're risking something, you're gambling. And if you're gambling, then I'm the guy you want to see.

A One-Hour Justin Timberlake Music Video & 30 minutes of Ben Affleck Blinking Repeatedly
4 October 2013 | by GodofGSXR1977See all my reviews

Mindless entertainment, check.

Justin Timberlake being Justin Timberlake, check.

Ben Affleck being his same character from Boiler Room but with more blinking while delivering frat-boy douche lines, double check.

Hot girl standing around being hot, Check.

FBI agent way to young and random to be a believable yet cliché FBI agent, check.

Justin Timberlake not nearly getting his ass kicked enough in this film, inexcusable but CHECK.
