Trivia

In the scene where Karl with a K is helping Norman Reedus clean up what is presumably a dead hooker, Karl has a crossbow draped across his back; paying homage to Norman Reedus's role on AMC's The Walking Dead, in which his character primarily uses a crossbow to dispose of Zombies. See more »

A film for '80s movie fans!
14 October 2014 | by clewandowSee all my reviews

I registered just to review this underrated film. Another reviewer summed this film up so perfectly I have to restate it: the film begins exactly as it should, and continues exactly the way you want it to right to the end. It is the sort of movie that would have been at home in 1985--down on his luck protagonist has an increasingly awful night that turns into a rampage through LA. It is funny without ever being stupid or gross, which probably explains its ranking. In a time when big name stars are putting out such comedic, big screen "gems" as the bizarrely unfunny toilet-humored "A Million Ways to Die in the West," it is a flashback to films that were funny without being dumb.
