    Watched this movie again last night and would recommend it.

    Did nothing at the box office, but I thought it was a hoot. Great cameo from Ben Affleck.

    Tell you what, the soundtrack gives your subs a good workout, too !

    Yeah I enjoyed it at the cinema. Do you have the region 1 or 2? What is the disc like? Extra features any good?

    Cheers, Lex.

    Excelent film... Giovani Ribissi (sp?) is destined for greatness in my opinion.

    Very enjoyable film, though the plot seems to take second place to the cast just having a laugh with their characters. Vin Diesel, with his hard sell, fantastic. Giovanni Ribisi is a highly underused actor. Affleck should try harder to get himself edgier roles such as this cameo, because it proves he can do them instead of the pap he usually delivers in crap like 'Forces Of Nature' and 'Pearl "Scum!" Harbor'.

    I have the region 1. Extras include half a dozen deleted scenes, including an alternate ending.

    Loved it.

    If you're in sales it makes your balls contract at times (as does Glengarry Glenross)....
