Some Things I Learned From 'Repo Men'


1) If your spouse wants you to change jobs, you better or she/he will not care if you die.

2) If you're in a bad financial situation your BFF will not help you even if it means you'll die.

3) If you work with your BFF, you can't be friends anymore if you change jobs.

4) If you get hurt on the job your employer is not responsible for you in any way.

5) In the future there will be no media or medical ethics oversight.

6) Getting a couple months of interest payments from selling a product you know no one can afford and then murdering them for it is a good business model.

7) If you have guns available to you and people are trying to kill you, don't use them because a hacksaw and hammer are more effective and the bad guys will only come at you one at a time anyway.

8) Always pay your bills.

I'm sure I "learned" more, but killed so many brain cells watching this piece of garbage that I cannot recall it.
Please feel free to add your own "Repo Men" life lessons...

8, In the future there is no such thing as a “sterile field”, you don’t need to wash the patient or your hands before SURGERY and magic foam will heal you in less than an hour.

9, You can operate on yourself or a friend with some magic red coke and it will kill ‘almost’ all the pain of making a major incision in your body and moving your hand around inside your rib cage.

10, Major blood loss is not a big deal in the future.

11, Brain Surgery can now be done in the field … by technicians!

12, TASER darts are now self-contained and are accurate over rather long distances.

13, If you do have a gun in the future it must be a Glock.

14, Some cars are electric but most of them still run on good ol’ oil.

15, The TSA is still alive and well …

16. Apparently once you purchase an artificial organ it's illegal to fly anywhere.

reply

um the reason they didn't use the gun on the upcoming bad guys was because they would've been overwhelmed, and may not have had enough bullets, i think people look for stuff to complain about in a movie.

reply


the gun? You do realize that every guard at corporate had a gun yet they never picked up the extra guns. No, two knives and a hacksaw will do just nicely.

Fun movie, but utterly preposterous. Nobody has to look for anything to complain about, you'd have to be blind or brain dead not to notice this stuff.

reply

and you do realize forest whitaker was nuts, hence why he didn't help his partner out and go to extremes to keep him around, and he was referring to remy,since remy didn't use a gun except on the guards. Also you know he was dreaming right?.

reply

17. Asian girls will be even more smarter than they are today...9 yr old surgeons

18. Forest Whitaker doesnt want a replacement eye to replace his little one.

19. Willy Wonka employees build the new organs

reply

lmao @ 18

same here, LMAO @ #18

may be he knew he couldn't afford the interest payments. lol.

@17: She started when she was 4.

#18 wins the interwebs

17a. You are clearly not Asian or you would know 'more smarter' is horrible grammar.

reply

sounds perfectly asian tho. why stop at smarter when u can be more smarter?

reply

Not so. What they were looking for was defaulters trying to leave the country, in essence, "smuggling" stolen organs. If a person's acct was up to date, they had no issue.

reply

20) you can write a script where the last act is a dream and still get it made in Hollywood.

21) if your wife leaves you, give up on her and find a homeless tramp as a replacement.

22) You can rip off "Brazil" for the entire ending of your movie and no one will know because the general population is very stupid


How tiresome is it when films with a good premise are executed this poorly?

reply

of course! i hadnt even noticed. perhaps because it was done a billion times better in brazil.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3136037

reply

or you could reference brazil and trick the genera populace, which you call stupid, to think that its a ripoff.

Applied Science? All science is applied. Eventually.

21b) It is RARE to find a homeless tramp as attractive and classy as Alice Braga...

reply

I know it was suppose to be a dream but your gonna make love while doing surgery. Then after scanning 46 body parts. Then the other guy blows it up ...WTH

'I know it was suppose to be a dream but your gonna make love while doing surgery. Then after scanning 46 body parts. Then the other guy blows it up ...WTH'

LOL




Its that man again!!

23. I can easily forgive my best friend for rigging my defibrillator to malfunction, so he can keep me around as his partner.

24. Forget what you learned from the Saw series. Mutilation is very erotic, amidst losing lots and lots of blood.

25. "We have to repo ourselves" is the best movie line ever.

reply

26. That even though you possess sophisticated scanners that can read everything about a persons synthetic organs inside their body from fifty feet away, one needs to perform surgery to read the bar code on the aforementioned organ.




Peace.

That had not occurred to us, Dude.

reply

27. Forest Whitaker does not give a damn about script quality. This and "The Experiment" are 28. filth.

29. Your BFF will risk killing you and indebting you if it means you might just get to keep on working together.

I hate how Hollywood produces so much garbage, where the only way the movies work is if one of the characters is literally batsh!t insane.

reply

30. artifical organs are worth in excess of $100,000 and repo men are hired to seek them out, but installing some sort of gps or tracking chip will not make life easier

reply

31. Although WiFi is everywhere, electronically complex organs cannot be turned off remotely.

32. Field agents with enough intelligence and education to find and remove human organs (however savagely) with speed and efficiency still don't earn enough to purchase an organ or two outright every now and again.

33. Although it's necessary to outwit security at a Fortune-500 facility to break in and steal jammers--which can be done in a mascot suit--upon reaching the airport, don't bother washing up or using clotting agents and fresh bandages to win your way past metal detectors and surly TSA agents trained to notice every out-of-place hair.

34. Infection isn't a concern in the future.

LMAO!! - #26. How true.

35. The Union's generous employee benefit package includes the choice of clunky, though portable, lifesaving contraptions or "flexible monthly payment plans" for those who desire an actual working organ inside the body.

36. Sex and mutilation is not merely a song by Android Lust.

37. It takes a little while for a human body to accept and incorporate a foreign organ into it's delicate systems, but after that a man can run, hide and fight repo men with the best of 'em.

38. Don't make the mistake of informing both your spouse and your best friend/colleague from work that you plan to ask for a transfer to another department, and that your next mission will be your last.

39. It's okay for a man to make a living and provide for his family by re-harvesting organs after a default, seeing as how there is food on the table and a roof overhead, but he'd better not foul up that opportunity for a lateral transfer at work or the wife's gone.

40. A Union organ sales training course can never top a repo man organ re-harvesting training course. The latter is grizzly, but cool.

41. A kick-ass former soldier-turned-kick-ass repo man will have no problem in adjusting to the exciting world of organ re-harvesting sales.

42. Attention all employees: while horseplay in the employee break area is allowed, taser guns and batons should be used with some degree of caution (i.e., just don't tase the boss).

43. Yanking tubes out of a man's chest (for purposes of escape) is almost like yanking I.V. tubes from an arm, except more awful.

44. Apparently a bloody grilling apron and a bloody butcher's knife would not be enough to convince a snooping, skeptical spouse that someone's been up to no good at the family cookout. And in a taxicab, no less.

45. "It'll be two minutes" does not do justice to the amount of blood an organ re-harvesting mission can spill. Fortunately, there are no nosy neighbors who pretend to be working in their gardens or doing chores in the backyard, just so they can peek and eavesdrop on the large cookout occurring next door, and happen to witness what may appear to be the murder of a man in a taxicab by a big black guy who is wearing a cookout apron and wielding a large butcher knife.

I learned that it doesn´t matter if it is about killing babies, a job is a job.

46. Illegally tresspassing? nah! it doesn't matter if they are here for your still-beating-heart!
