A "J" edit is used to mostly hide a dialog change when Joe says the line, "Relax. I'm doing everything I can do." The video cut takes place as he's sitting down and turning towards the camera and it's obvious he's not saying what we hear. There's also a slight, but noticeable, audio change when the dialog starts matching the video. See more »
OK, so this may not be the best movie, in fact, its not really good in a sense of writing and such, but it is fun and enjoyable. Goldie Hawn and Mel Gibson don't really have the best chemistry, but there not really suppose to throughout most of the movie. Both do good in their characters, and the acting from everyone who played in it was not bad. The movie does have a few cheesy moments, and of course the movie is far from being believable, but its fine. Besides the humor, what saves this movie is the action. Good action, not particularly original or suspenseful, but its fun and highly entertaining, which is what you should want in an action/comedy.
Overall the movie is for people interested in the actors, or those who want an action comedy.
I rate it a 7/10 PG-13-Action Violence, Some Sexual Content/Nudity, and Language (this isn't a kids movie either).
