  • Allusions

    • Dale's rescue plan involving the swarm of flower delivery men carrying long boxes relies on the obvious allusion to guns being concealed in florists' boxes in old gangster movies and such films as Dog Day Afternoon and Terminator 2 Judgment Day. The allusion is so powerful, Dale's gun club buddies surrender even though the florist trucks are just plain florist trucks.
