Do not waste your time to even rent this. Such a bore.

Rated 1/10. A very silly and weird movie, with no real plot. As well, the bad acting and gratuitous violence, makes for a real bomb of a movie.

I'd have to concur with the commenters below by missmoshii, light and darkly humorous . . . and MeredithW.
[Sidebar: I think the first movie I saw Eisenberg in was a humorous werewolf movie with Christina Ricci, a surprisingly good flick. He seems to excel in the offbeat roles.]

Stoner comedy meets bloody, hardcore action film in this underrated gem full of “hey, it’s that guy!” moments.

It's just not good. The premise and setup were ok. The idea of a stoner comedy/spy movie mashup is potentially enjoyable. But instead of action and comedy there are angsty serious talks and prolonged emotional discussions and it's all super dramatic and serious and convinced of it's own importance. It turns into more of a stoner drama, which just doesn't work. The movie takes an inherently absurd premise and then plays with deadly earnest seriousness, and it just fails. What jokes there are mostly fall flat, and the action scenes are laughably bad. If you are already disposed to disliking Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart this won't change your mind, though I think they do the best they can with what they are given in this movie.

Horrid and stupid. Couldn't make it past the first 20 minutes. Not worth your time or the electricity.

I found this movie entertaining. The characters made the movie and though there was no plot to speak of I enjoyed it.

Refreshing script juxtaposing drama/comedy and gory fight unpredictable fight scenes. Great casting and group of actors. I loved this sometimes light / dark humorous film!

Now I'll know different ways to defend myself when dealing with a crazy in a Walmart!

Some fan/fans seem to have all the good quotes posted in IMDb:

However, did not find this in IMDb, when Mike was surprised that his trick shot worked like a charm:

Mike: Wow. The ol' frying pan bullet trick.

and this full quote by Victoria:
... Pardon me for saying it, sir. But that is a puppy worth saving. That is a $400 million puppy. And you have him sitting in a holding cell right now. You're just going to put him down?
