Private investigator Matthew Scudder is hired by a drug kingpin to find out who kidnapped and murdered his wife.
You need some help, man.
Matt Scudder: Oh, God.
Danny Ortiz: I don't care. You want to mess up your own shit - but you're going to mess up mine, too. I need to know you got my back. Not that you're going to come falling through the door behind me...
Matt Scudder: Don't worry your pretty ...
Matt keeps calling TJ "P. Diddy." But Sean Combs wouldn't use that name until 2001. The movie is set pre-Y2K.
The offending scene cut from the film (so it could be rated 15 instead of 18) features the two villains tormenting and sexually threatening a restrained woman in the back of a van. The British censors felt this scene lingered on the nastiness and detail, and was disturbing. The UK distributor removed the small scene and got their desired 15 rating.
