Goofs

When officer Chandler shows the councilman the staged video of the casino owners calling him short and still running a casino in another location, the video was filmed in the old house as evidenced by the stairs and carpet. This could not have been done as that house was burned down at this point in the movie. Also, it was clearly not a different location as was stated in the scene. See more »

Is it perfect? No. Are there boring bits? For sure. But all and all it's pretty funny and we enjoyed it
