Quotes

Michael Cleveland: That idiot is dead.
William Cobb: So incredibly dead.
Michael Cleveland: Voice analysis is back. Name's Samuel Larson. He published a book claiming to be, get this... an international assassin. We should probably pull him out, put him on a plane home.
William Cobb: Why the hell would we do that?
Michael Cleveland: Because we are the CIA. Bet you a Benji he's dead in less than 48.
William Cobb: Double he doesn't make it to breakfast.

This is a good movie, watch it!
11 November 2016 | by nheppdingSee all my reviews

Obviously it's not great, but it's definitely totally fine, give it a watch!

I love Kevin James, I'll watch anything with this guy in it. Do you like other movies with Kevin James? Because this is another one. The action is well done and I laughed out loud a few times. There are worse ways to spend a Friday night, I promise.

Kevin James is a writer who people think is actually an assassin but he's so good at writing he becomes the assassin. Someone truly zany came up with this one and it's laugh out loud wild ride funny. It also happens to be shot super nice, which is a total plus!

Seriously, it's on Netflix streaming right now, what are you waiting for?!
