  1. Who knew Samuel L. Jackson and Eugene Levy would make such a dynamic comic duo?
  2. An action buddy comedy is such an offbeat and inspired notion that it's impossible not to think of it without smiling.

I think part of it is understanding Eugene Levy's sense of humor. The humor is in his expressions & hand gestures (It's very much a Jewish sense of humor.) He is a perfect foil for Samuel Jackon's kick-ass no-nonsense. So if you don't get, you lose! Full Review »
