I know the appeal of this movie is Al Pacino's character receives a threat call informing him that he has 88 minutes to live and he has to figure out who wants him dead, and yet, during that time, it doesn't feel like 88 minutes and instead it feels much longer. I guess Roger Ebert was right when he said, "No good movie is too long and no bad movie is short enough."

The cherry on top of it all is either a well-placed stegosaurus toy during an attempt by Al Pacino to deliver a serious, lengthy monologue or this dialogue exchange:

Jack: "Somebody hired Sara Pollard to be with me last night, then killed her. Took my semen, deposited it into Dale Morris."
Frank: "Do …
