Goofs

Two sound errors concerning one of the henchman's gun. He is carrying a pistol with a silencer but when he unlocks the weapon, ready to shoot, the gun clicks like a .38 revolver's cylinder, and when he fires at Eric not only the silencer can't be heard - which is supposed to reduce the firing sound - but it sounds like a revolver firing.

Dolph is simply amazing
22 September 2004 | by wellmansanteeSee all my reviews

Pentathalon is absolutely hilarious, Dolph definitely at his prime. So many ridiculous scenes from the trashcan window throw to Brogar run. I have gotten so much enjoyment from this film i feel i should pay Dolph. I am still curious as to why Dolph flushes the toilet after I think it's Offerman gets beat up over the toilet. Do not take this movies seriously though because its just worth it to actually think about it.Hutch from the old Starsky and Hutch is the old Nazi guy who you can't understand a single word he says because he is so crazy. Its also great because Bruce Malmuth stars in it as well in which he also wrote the story for. This was definitely the movie that made Dolph more passionate about making such hilarious films.
