Comedy of errors, sheriff gets what he deserves.
Good comedy, well written & acted. Unusual part for Samuel Jackson, a
nice change, and he does an excellent job in his roll. Dabney Coleman
does an outstanding job of portraying the stereotypical
dumb-racist-goofy sheriff. I think the only overacted part was done by
Nick Cage. His part as a spastic jerk was good, but maybe a bit too
hyper or extreme. Nobody is that animated!
This movie does have a good social commentary, and it is the root of
it\'s creation. Cudos to the creators, for much care and effort in doing
a well balanced production! Not so heavy the message, as to blow the
fun of this flick. Not so light, that the attitudes and results of
them, can\'t be clearly seen.
Ignorance gets it\'s just reward, and the righteous prevail! Typical
stereotype movie? Sure! It is a fun production, and a good popcorn &
soda spitter, worth your time if you haven\'t seen it. Bonus? ...Nobody
One of those movies you need to see!
This film is possibly one of the funniest films ever. A seriously great
flick which will make you laugh more than ones. Great acting, writing
and directing and the plot is so brilliant that you want believe it.
