Goofs

During the kidnapping of Rene Russo someone stated that the semiautomatic she tried to fire would not have clicked more than once. Not true, my S&W double action semiautomatic, when empty will fire (click) every time I pull the trigger. Only single actions will not fire repeatedly. You would have to cock the hammer before each pull. See more »

A smile now and again, but nothing really funny.
22 February 2018 | by apjcSee all my reviews

An excellent cast who may have had nothing better to do than pay the bills. There are no laugh out loud moments, It seems to centre on older men being as competitive as young men, boys will be boys. But the whole plot and comic moments are so lame it never gets above mediocre. Not terrible, but not really worth watching.
