The tagline "License to kill. License to chill." appears in some promotional materials including movie posters for this spy comedy. Two espionage cinema movies have used this title before. They are Licence to Kill (1989) and License to Kill (1964) (aka "License to Kill"). Apart from a spin-off video-game Licence to Kill (1989) and television episodes, the "Licence to Kill" phrase previously lent its name to the name of a card game in 1967. Produced by Golden Wonder, the packaging boasts the tagline: "An Exciting New James Bond Game". There are 52 playing cards which include four "Licence to Kill" cards, 48 "Enemy Agent" cards and there are twelve "Assignment Cards". The cover of the manual for the card game read: "O.H.M.S. - TOP SECRET - OO AGENTS ONLY". See more »
Near the end of the movie, after "The Scorpion" blows up, the shot pans birdseye to the top of the hotel and there is no helicopter pad or helicopter on the roof. A henchman had previously said "The chopper is ready boss" as he came down from the roof. See more »
The average Suburban family gets a new neighbors, who are more than what they seem. Nothing out of the ordinary.
Zach Galifianakis and Isla Fisher made a cute couple in the movie. very good comedy duo in an mediocre film.
Jon Hamm is a fantastic straight man for the comedy that Galifianakis was dishing out.
Gal Gadot is impressive. She's the one who has to keep up with the other three and she does a good job. i don't think I've seen her do anything outside the Fast and Furious movies so it was nice to see that she can do something else.
I know i'm sitting here writing about the film, but for the most part there is really is not anything to write about. It gives you enough laughs so I feel like I did not waste my cash, but it's definitely not a movie you'll remember down the road. Nothing spectacular.
