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 »

Broke My Will Farrell Pledge
1 July 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wanted to go to the movies to have a laugh, so I decided to break my pledge to never, ever go see a Will Farrell movie. Bad, bad, bad mistake. There were more laughs in Kramer v Kramer. This was very possibly the worst movie I have ever seen. Gratuitous, nonstop foul language in what had to a parody of bad comedy, no one could make this crap on purpose. I would have left after 20 minutes, but my wife was getting a nice snooze. When she woke up at the credit roll and asked what she had missed, I said "Absolutely nothing." My new pledge is to never, under threat of assisted suicide, go to a Will Farrell OR Amy Poehler movie.
