With help from his best friend, Steve pulls out the big guns to retrieve Spyder's stolen cash and cocaine and save Buddy.. Once Upon a Time in Venice Wiki
Funny in a witty, sophomoric humor way. It is pretty good, but not as good as you want it to be. (at least for me) Of course, the previews look like it's a laugh a minute, crime caper spoof. I was hoping it would be funnier with this great cast. Some very funny moments for sure. It should definately be rated R for nudity, drugs, and shooting. Not something to watch with kids around. Glad I watched it, but wish I wouldn't have bought it seeing I'm not sure I will watch it again.
We used to say the same thing in the Music Industry, back in the Day - many critics were failed Musicians, & it was true! What is wrong with a bunch of successful actors just having some fun together? And if the end result is entertaining, great! Nothing even remotely Oscar-worthy, a plot with so many holes it is virtually Quantum, but this is just pure dumb fun! Yep, I got it as a 99 cent movie, & it gave my Wife & I some much-needed laughs on a tough Day. A Film doesn't always have to fix the Planet or have a deep message. Fun is Good!
Terrible movie. A total disappointment for a Bruce Willis movie. Save your money.
Some funny moments. Horrid ending. Very weak plot. Vulgar and offensive - apparently for shock value and humor - didn’t work. Thankful I only wasted 99 cents! Hey Apple! Can I have a refund?!
Wow. What an amateur effort. The scenery was great. The nekid Aussie chick was good. And the rest was a waste of money. Glad I only spent 99 cents.
Love it Love Bruce
This is pure garbage, no real plot, no acting, no humor at all, I‘m sure bruce willis made this piece of crap just for the money while waiting for a good script to come along. If he keeps making junk like this, everyone will forget he used to be an actor.
The worst movie ever! complete waste of time and money.
Strange plot but Bruce Willis and John goodman are a comedic couple that really shine very funny and weird
Could have been a great movie. So many options for the story line. Instead, it was a waste of the talent. Wish I had picked a different movie for adult family movie night. They will never let me pick the movie again.
