Did You Know?


The calendar on Eddie's refrigerator is for August 2014. Assuming that's the month the story begins, it is incorrect that Gloria changes channels on TV and watches "The X Factor" because the last airing of the U.S. version of that show was in December of 2013. Perhaps at the time of filming this scene the filmmakers didn't know "The X Factor" would be canceled, but even if it had gotten a fourth season, it would not have premiered until the latter half of September, so it STILL shouldn't have been depicted as being on in August.

From New York, without love in Paris.
24 October 2016 | by Reno-RanganSee all my reviews

This is not a film that everybody was looking forward. This something an unexpected film from the new crew, but the actors were somewhat known to us. They are mostly supporting cast from the mainstream films, but they played the main characters in this little film. A simple cop film that tells the story of two NYPD detectives who were hired to solve a case of stolen handbag in the Paris. So they pack their bags and land in the city of love. It's like a vacation for them, but they aware of their assignment and they begin working on their own way to find the thief. The rest is the small adventures filled with the decent comedies.

The film was short and there were no mega stunt sequences. Not because it was a small budget film, but it was aimed to keep everything simple. More like in the real society, but improvised it by adding some comedies. I don't know Luis Guzman ever did a lead role, but this is first of his for me and I enjoyed his part along with his partner. The praise must go to the effort, not for the overall film. Because I knew it won't be another 'Bad Boys', so I braced myself to watch it and then I found it better. It is a lot better than many craps from the recent time, so it is worth watching at once, but don't force yourself.
