Fast-talking Latino con artist Pestario "Pest" Vargas is the target of Scottish mobsters to whom he owes a considerable debt. Willing to do anything to raise money and avoid severe injury or death, Vargas agrees to a very unusual job -- he will be transported to a remote island and hunted by Gustav Shank, a racist German executive. If he can survive a full day and night, Vargas gets $50,000 and will be set free. Is he wily enough to elude Shank? --TMDb

Eh. Had some funny moments, but not much.... Johnny's style of humour is decent, in small doses.... but an hour and a half of it is just annoying. The opening sequence is pretty funny, as is the first scene or two; then it just keeps repeating the same type of jokes, over and over and over and over and... yeah. The gay kid has some pretty good moments here and there, pulled a few chuckles from myself, but overall, not an enjoyable movie.

This movie gives him such a bad reputation. He's a brilliant writer, and a hilarious guy, not to mention a brilliant actor. This movie is just shit, no matter what way you look at it.

I remembered liking it a lot when I was a kid so I watched it recently with my g/f... God was I dissapointed haha. A classic, just not a good one.

I can't understand how ANYONE could actually like this movie. I was around the age of 13 when i first saw it, and i didn't even like it then.

i actually think this movie is pretty funny. it might get a little repetitive and annoying, but some of the jokes, i believe, are hilarious

I LOVE this movie. And damn, this review is short. I can see how it can be a little annoying but I still love it.
