Then check out "Stretch" 2014...A noirish black comedy directed by Joe Carnahan (Smoking Aces, Narc, The A Team, The Grey). The story revolves around a loser limo driver who owes a mobster $6000 in gambling debts. In typical noir fashion, Stretch has a rough night that skips "bad" and goes straight from worse to much, much, much worse when A. A rival Russian Limo CEO madman and his equally insane tow truck driver B. A 50Cent wannabe, white bread rapper and bimbo entourage, C. Bat krap crazy billionaire and D. Former best GF and E. FBI, CHIPs, and LAPD all interfere with his plans to somehow repay the debt, turn over a new leaf and win back his GF all while being advised by a ghostly presence. ( Ed Helms) in back of the limo. Action packed comic thriller will have you rooting for our hard luck hero. Currently playing on Netflix. Starring Patrick Wilson, Chris Pine and Ed Helms. Scores an 83 on RT with some enthusiastic critical reviews. As the poster proclaims; "SHIFT HAPPENS" Ray Liotta and David Hasselhof appear in cameos as pissed off limo clients adding to Stretch's comic, calamitous evening.
