Pretty good for a movie I'd never heard of. Not nearly as original as "Smoking Aces" but better than most of the big name movies out there.

A wild and crazy film even for Hollywood, but all for fun and games. Though without caption, many memorable cynical and hopeless "Noir dialogue," see examples in quotes.

Very UNREALISTIC, kind of a bit too overdone for shock value and plain weird and predictable. It'll keep you watching though just to see how the "star" gets out of all the jams he constantly and continuously gets into. Sappy ending.

Stretch on his own fate:

Whether that fate is a wrath-of-God-like beating from Boris (thug after him) there, or just wasting away in a life I never intended to live, it's got me cornered now. God, he's really big. Maybe all this was inevitable. Facing this now. Figuring it out on the fly. Life doesn't allow you to rehearse. You just have to...live and learn.

Maybe losing my job is like...is like part of some plan.

I don't believe in fate, destiny. To me life's nothing but timing.

I don't know how it sort of snowballed on me. Just one thing led to another and... Look at me. It doesn't take much to go from good to bad. Smallest, dumbest little twist of fate sometimes. I didn't believe in that, "fate," before last night.

My friend, everything happens for a reason. Has to be that way. It'd be too depressing otherwise.

Stretch: But right now, you're gonna give me that goddxxn briefcase, or I'm gonna turn this VIP room into a goddxxn pig roast with more cops than you can count. When the smoke clears, and you're in LA County, hip-deep in hardened cons who wanna double park their dicks in your hind hole, you're gonna be wishing you had this moment back. Wishing that you had taken the word of a heavily decorated, veteran police officer, instead of trying to play tough guy in your tennis whites. So come on, Crayola, you wanna color or what?

Opening car crash scene:
Stretch: If you like stories about chance and coincidence and fate...then here's one you've never heard. Boy meets girl...Girl almost kills boy by running a red light at rush hour. Boy is T-boned at over 60 miles per hour.. And survives with barely a scratch.
Other Driver: Are you drunk?
Stretch: Not anymore. Is that cocaine on your nose? Between the bottle and the sports book ... boy had lost his way in the City of Angels. Until he found one. The one he's been looking for his entire life.
Candace: I'm sorry, I didn't see the light
Stretch: Well, don't go towards it now … Boy falls in love in that second, and knows his luck is about to change.
