Trivia

The scenes behind the anchorman of "Oh Really? The facts" are in fact real protests in Quito. The protests took place in 2015 against the administration of President Rafael Correa. See more »

Goofs

The Aircraft Frank and Finch return home from Ecuador IN shows the registration number AS being simply "GSTG". In actuality, this Bombardier Challenger 605 has the Canadian registration number of "C-GSTG", the Canadian International code prefix of "C-" having been OBVIOUSLY whited out. Had this been an Ecuadorian civil aircraft, it would have an "HC-" prefix, and thus would have been "HC-GSTG". See more »

Quotes

Claire Maddox: Be careful - both of you - obviously. It will be dangerous.
Frank Bonneville: Danger's my middle name...

Not as bad as some reviews say
2 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

Granted, it's not a movie you got out of your way to see.

But, it is just a nice film to watch. I would regard it as casual, it's one of them movies you go , well i have a couple hours to kill might as well see that.

Great movie to have on in the background.

It's slow paced relatively predictable, i do think it contains more English humor then American, but i don't think it's meant to do real big laugh out loud moments.

Not every movie should have you on the edge of your seat.

Happily watch it again
