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 »

Crazy Credits

After the last scene and before the credits start rolling, there is a series of blooper scenes from different cast members. See more »

Truly 'A'wful
5 July 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I went in to the cinema expecting to be entertained with a funny and entertaining film. Oh how I was let down. The acting if just plain bad. The humour is almost non-existent, and when there is some, it is dragged out until it is no longer funny. Almost from the beginning I was tempted to walk out of the cinema, but I was hoping that the film would pick up - I wasted the 80 plus minutes of my life.

I do not know when I will be able to risk watching another film with either of the lead (I should use the term 'Actors' here, but I felt that there was nothing that could be referred to as acting in the film from them). Avoid, and save some of your life.
