Steve Ford (Bruce Willis) is a down but not out L.A based Private Investigator whose professional and personal worlds collide after his loving pet Buddy is stolen by a notorious gang. A series of crazy circumstances find him doing the gang's bidding, while being chased by two vengeful Samoan brothers, a loan shark's goons, and a few other shady characters. They say a dog is a man's best friend, and Steve shows how far a man will go to be reunited with him.
A Los Angeles detective seeks out the ruthless gang that stole his dog.
first off i say ''in the spirit'' but certainly not the same level as those great classics.
while watching it i had many flashbacks of those great classics because the style and humor is in the same area and style, those 3 others are 10/10 movies while this one for me is 6/10 , however it is an easy going ride which gives you a few good laughs and staying cool with the whole ''Californian spirit'' .
The whole sub-story around Lew the Jew is absolutely hilarious, the one with Spyder is boring. "Once Upon a Time in Venice" (a.k.a. "L.A. Rush") is a funny film, not funny / hilarious, but more a funny / entertaining & harmless flick that reminds a lot the Shane Black's penned works such as Willis' own "The Last Boy Scout" or "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" and the early 90's offbeat action comedies such as "The Adventures of Ford Fairlane".
It's not as clever as the flicks above mentioned & the humor is a bit juvenile oriented, but it isn't as bad as the other reviewers mentioned here and, in fact, it's one of the first Bruce Willis' movies in a long time, that he's awake during it and acting with conviction like if he's interested in the material, not in the sleepwalking mode / 'gimme 5 million for a 10 minutes cameo with me bored to death performing in it' of his latest roles.
Bruce is here in top form for his age, making a parody of his most iconic characters like John McClane & Joe Hallenbeck and even a certain humorous scene reminiscent of his Butch Coolidge in "Pulp Fiction". The supporting cast is full of well-known faces: Famke Janssen; John Goodman in his usual "best & faithful friend, but a loser" role; Adam Goldberg; Christopher MacDonald; David Arquette & Jason Momoa, who surprisingly delivers a good performance spoofing a manly, but sensitive leader of a Mexican street gang.
Verdict: it's a nicely paced little comic flick which went straight-to-DVD in most of the countries, but deserves to be seen at least once. For fans of an unpretentious action / comedy, not for the 'thinking man', just for an amusing and lazy Sunday afternoon at the movies. At times it’s funny as hell. At other times it’s pretty much a disaster. But it never commits the crime of being tedious. a5c7b9f00b
