Goofs

The film portrays Peter shooting himself in the mouth, then remaining unharmed because the gun is loaded with blanks. However, this action would actually cause severe injury or death, since a gun loaded with blanks will fire compressed gas with the force of a bullet. See more »

Chasing pigeons
21 July 2003 | by o-falkSee all my reviews

This is in fact quite funny. Nicolas Cage plays the role of a man who get's bitten by a vampire (or atleast HE thinks he gets bitten but I seriously doubt it's a vampire who bites him). And as time goes on he becomes more and more paranoid and starts to play the part of an actual vampire, though he doesn't have any fangs and so he gets some of his own from a small shop selling really weird stuff. His fangs are made from ... like, I don't know, really fine china? But that's not enough. He turns way crazier. Whatching Nicolas Cage running around the street chasing a f*cking pigeon (for dinner) is one of the funniest things I've ever seen. Not because it's particularly funny, but it's way to bizarre to be tragic.

Apart from all this, a real highlight in this little flick is the scene in which Nicolas Cage actually eats a real live cocroach. IT'S NOT EVEN A JOKE. HE ACTUALLY EAT'S IT. And this is not just a rumor, it's a fact. That scene alone is almost worth whatching it all. Totally disgusting.
