Hey. This is the movie with a couple Sage Francis songs. Hearing Sage Francis songs in a movie is more than enough to sell me a ticket.

Other than that, it looks like a pretty regular cop flick. The trailer wasn't really standout.

I'm pretty sure...because of the writer's strike...this movie got delayed by about a year. It was actually originally supposed to have come out in March or April (I've been seeing trailers for it for a while...I recall a preview for it was attachted to Rendition in October) but the studio said something about not being able to get the advertisement needed. That and you factor in all the New Line Cinema shakeups...

It has been delayed to an unknown time in early 2009 at this moment.

There was another New Line Cinema film, Inkheart, which was also supposed to have come out by now with Brendan Frasier that was also delayed until early 2009 for apparently the same reasons.

I think this looks good. Probably WB is trying to shift through the rumble that was New Line. I bet late summer/early fall.

I haven't heard a lot of talk about this movie. I think it looks great.

Am I going to be the only person going to see this on the first night ???

Re: Pride And Glory?

I was very disappointed with this.

The name Carnahan is now a warning to me, if I see his name I'll assume it's probably a very weak movie.

Re: Pride And Glory?

the movie was standard fare...good actors in cliche roles and plot. The thing that made dislike it more was...the fight in the bar, just throw away police procedure there..

I enjoyed it. It's not a great movie but it was entertaining enough to keep me focused on it.
