Crazy Credits

The opening credits list the cast in alphabetical order, with Malin Akerman coming first. Her legal name is actually Malin Åkerman. The letter Å is the final letter of the Swedish alphabet so she could just as well have been listed last. See more »

The Plot.

A hardened detective lays low in a darkened downtown Los Angeles hotel room, biding his time as he patiently awaits a gang of vengeful hit men that are on his tail.

Throughout the course of this one fateful night the detective becomes entangled in a web of girls, guns, and money, as he enlists the help of the many intriguing hotel guests that he encounters in an effort to evade the grave fate that lies in store.

Wow. Written like a bad stage play.

Directed like a HS effort.

And acted like they can't get out of a paper bag.

It's horrible.

For the first 35 minutes i thought this was a parody/ comedy. It's not.

It's just a disaster.
