PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Comedy
A recently slain cop joins a team of undead police officers working for the Rest in Peace Department and tries to find the man who murdered him.
Towards the end of the movie Roy (Jeff Bridges) says "Reminds me of Main Street in Dodge. They picked the wrong man to have a stand off with, I invented this shit" before walking into the street and having a Wild West quick draw duel with a couple of Dead-O's. The only recorded true life quick draw shoot out in the Old West involved Dodge City Marshal James Butler 'Wild Bill' Hickock on Main Street in Dodge City, Kansas. Jeff Bridges previously played Hickock in "Wild Bill" (1995) and also strongly resembles an older version of that historical character in this movie.
You think *you've* had a bad day at work? I think I got you beat.
Nick: That's not me.
Nick: Nope, that's my partner.
Pulaski: Suck it!
Nick: There I am. Three or four days ago, I didn't know this world existed. But three or four days ago, I wasn't in the Rest In Peace Department...
At the beginning of the movie, Nick's red car collides with a locked metal gate and breaks it open. In the next shot, the car is undamaged.
As the primary cast is first being shown, the names are accompanied by images relevant to their characters: Roy's ten-gallon hat, Proctor's white boots, Hayes' St. Christopher's medal, etc.
