Stretch hits a dumpster and the driver's airbag deploys on the limo. He later drives the car. The fuel pumps on most newer cars shut down when the airbag deploys, which would prevent the car from going far. See more »
If you like stories about chance and coincidence and fate, then here's one you'd never heard. Boy meets girl. Girl almost kills boy by running a red light at rush hour. Boy is T-boned at over 60 miles an hour.
God, are you alright?
And survives with barely a scratch.
Are you drunk?
Not any more.

I just don't get the mediocre ratings I'm seeing for this one. I thought it was a perfect action-comedy - right up there with 'The (original) Hangover', 'Horrible Bosses' and the like.
Here's how it hit me..
Story: Tight, to-the-point, succinct and actually, pretty plausible. Pace: Fast from the first few seconds, then damn-near unrelenting. Stunts, Effects, Makeup & Camera-Work: Top-shelf. Characters: Believable and uncomplicated by too much 'back story'. Acting: Each-n-EVERY actor in this film displayed their awesomeness. Predictability: You NEVER knew what was coming next. LOTS of surprises. Oh - and nice ending, too.
Viewer discretion: This is definitely a film for grown-ups. LOTS of drug use and some mild nudity.
My head's still spinning down. What a fun flick. Not familiar with much of the director's work, but this was cool.
