It could use more blammo. And more witty. And more everything else. But it requires nothing from you and, in turn, gives back a reasonable amount of action-tainment, so you still come out ahead in the bargain.
With its self-deprecating humour, and a hilarious performance from Malkovich, the film -- though it never makes the least bit of sense -- is easy to take, and there are a few snappy lines of dialogue, too.
