The flag in the border office is not the right size - a Canadian flag is twice as long as it is wide. See more »


Border Agent: A Canadian doesn't get sad. Sadness was made by the USA.
Wallace Bryton: Oh, come on. What does that mean?
Border Agent: [pointing at Canadian flag] Take off, it's true. Right there on our flag. It's right there when you look at it. When you see past that sacred Maple Leaf, you know what you see?
Wallace Bryton: A white wall?
Border Agent: You see that in America - you may be red, white and blue. But in Canada, you're red, white, but never blue, eh?

User Reviews

Didn't think Kevin Smith had it in him
4 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

What can I say except it was a vast disappointment and that seems like an understatement. It starts out great and really draws you in. The characters are good and enjoyable. Then the second half of the movie reveals what's in store and I lost all interest in the movie. I stuck it out against my better judgment only to eventually question my judgment.

You can read the plot line and the other reviews and get an idea what the movie was about so I'm not going to go on about it. One reviewer said it best when he compared this to Human Centipede. Don't say you were not warned.
