Main Plot Points:
- When Baz, a Lebanese soldier accidentally walks into a top secret Israeli communication base, he greets Bob, an American soldier, with a punch to the face, and Ari, an Israeli with a choke hold. Aware that he is in the wrong place at the wrong time, Baz fails to escape after triggering an emergency lock-down mechanism.
- Now, trapped for six hours, three sworn enemies are forced to evaluate their lives, their alliances and ultimately each other with two options…impending doom, or a chance at life. Truths are told, noses are broken, ribs are cooked, guns are drawn, and a peace plan is made.
- Time is running out for the trio. Will they survive without killing each other, and if they do, will they ever be the same again?
What We Thought:
- Bordering on Bad Behavior didn’t really work for me.
- Basically what I got out of the film was that weed could stop all the violence in the Middle East. Yup.
- The entire movie is an Arab soldier, an Israel soldier and an American (Tom Sizemore) locked in a communications house with weed, beer and guns.
- Three guys getting high, talking about what’s going on in the Middle East, who’s to blame, who’s right, why the US is involved. Some of it is kind of funny, but an entire movie of rehashed stereotypical jokes gets tired quickly.
- Looking at the DVD cover art, I was expecting more of an action film as well. There’s some flashback scenes involving explosions and what not, but it’s not an action flick in the slightest.
- Someone might think Bordering on Bad Behavior is really funny, but that someone isn’t me. Trust me, I’m as politically incorrect as they come and it takes a lot to offend me so it wasn’t that I found the jokes distasteful or anything. I just didn’t think they were funny for 84 minutes.
