Prizzi's Honor, The Matrix

The name of this movie, Zotz!, is used by Jack Nicholson playing hitman Charley Partanna in "Prizzi's Honor". He says, "Zotz her? Clip Irene?", meaning shoot her. I believe he points his finger like a gun.

The scene on the roof of the building looked exactly like a precursor to 'bullet time' in the Matrix movies. Slow motion bullet flight that Tom Poston easily avoids by ducking out of the way.


I just watched it and thought the same about The Matrix. I enjoyed Zotz! quite a bit more, though.
