When eating with Niko, Marty, and Mark the night before a fight, Scott Voss gets pied in the face with a cherry pie. The remnants of the pie are shown in one shot under his nose, then it flips to another shot and is under his nose and on his chin, then flips back and is only under his nose again. See more »
I had low expectations for this given the plot (which you can't take seriously) and figured the best parts were shown in the trailers. I must say I was pleasantly surprised.
The plot is all very predictable but really who cares for this type of movie. The dialog is not that sharp (Seven Psychopaths it is not) and while some parts are a little corny, the film is light hearted, does not take itself too seriously and is excellent entertainment if you want to switch off your brain at the end of the week.
This film moves at a good pace, is funny throughout, with some real laugh out loud moments, and leaves you with a good feeling at the end.
