It's basically a perfect mish-mash of typical Hollywood tropes, packed into one. John Candy's from my hometown, so I have always had a bias towards him. Malik Yoba (the guy who played Ice on Arrested Development) plays a bald badass called Yul Brenner. This is one of those films that you try really hard to hate, but it's such a perfect Hollywood film, that you just can't. Which makes me hate it a little bit more.
