When we first see Gary in uniform, the US Flag patch on his right shoulder shows the blue field on the left. This is the proper display of the US Flag EXCEPT on uniform patches. The blue field is always facing forward on right sleeve patches. See more »

A fun and fast-paced movie that blends genres, with elements of comedy, action, and romance. The cast is strong, led by Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams, and with a memorable performance from Jesse Plemons, who plays a creepy divorced cop. There are lots of little sub-plots that are kept up throughout the film, on top of its plot twists and outrageous moments, and it's entertaining from start to finish.
