Trivia

References to Finland: Finnish airline Blue1 - flown using Boeing 717 - is shown landing in Paris, France implicating that a connecting flight from Helsinki, Finland. Also, in Budapest, Hungary, when Susan Cooper is preparing a flare: one can see Tikkurila's Feelings Extra Durable Paint interior paint bucket on the table. Tikkurila is a Finnish manufacturer of paints and lacquers. Tikkurila sells paints only in Nordic countries and Russia, Hungary is not an active market for Tikkurila. See more »

Goofs

The BMW 740d in the car chase is a diesel, but the sounds coming from it are that of a petrol car. Very noticeable when it revs. The 4- or 3-Series later on in the film is a petrol, but has been given a V8-sounding note, which it doesn't have. See more »

Reminiscent of a failed stand-up performance: ups and downs
20 May 2015 | by pivicSee all my reviews

This film contains a lot of non-working jokes, and I'm referring to members of the cinema audience who were laughing at most jokes, that they didn't actually laugh at a lot of stuff that were obviously meant as jokes but fell flat.

Having said that, there are a few laugh out loud moments in this film, for me, especially where I really didn't want to laugh, but couldn't help myself. I also liked a lot of the moments where I felt the laughs were for women, not _at_ women; have we reached a higher consciousness where feministic comedy is concerned? I'd like to think so.

The forté of McCarthy is what makes this film work, along with parts of the script. The plot is ridiculous, as is most of the twists, but some of the jokes are really funny, even though most of the physical comedy sadly makes me remember Benny Hill, and yearn for Monty Python or South Park. This film doesn't exactly win at being a pastiche of the James Bond franchise, but it's better than being a parody.

This film reminds me of a semi-failed stand-up performance, where you laugh because of some of the jokes, but not at most. You wait for the good ones to come, but it's a bad roller-coaster ride.
