R | | Comedy, Crime
A struggling screenwriter inadvertently becomes entangled in the Los Angeles criminal underworld after his oddball friends kidnap a gangster's beloved Shih Tzu.
(At around five minutes) Billy (Sam Rockwell) and Marty (Colin Farrell) are seen sitting in a theater watching Violent Cop (1989).
Billy's a psychopath, Hans.
Hans: I guess he's made it into your movie now.
While Marty and Billy are standing by the sign that says "No Shooting," the sign changes between loudly blowing in the wind to being still between shots.
A surprise final scene interrupts the closing credits a few seconds after they start.
