Generic comedy in almost every way. Even master of cool Samuel L. Jackson looks like he's embarrassed to be in the film. There are so many other good choices out there - skip this for your health.

"Agent Derrick Vann" (Samuel L. Jackson) is a street-wise federal agent with a bad attitude and is not well liked by anybody except his daughter. He is on the hunt of weapons dealer responsible for the murder of his partner, who was on the take.

This movie was marketed as a comedy, but the laughs are few and far between. In my opinion, if it were marketed as something other than a comedy it probably would have made more than the $8-million-plus in the US box office.
