The 51st State (or Formula 51 as it was titled in the US release) is a UK action comedy starring Samuel L. Jackson and Robert Carlyle. I remember seeing early commercials for it, but I'll be damned if I actually saw it hit theaters. I mean, an action comedy starring Sam? Why couldn't the studios get behind that? I suspect poor performance at test screenings. But whatever the case, it's a crying shame that this line didn't make it into the popular pantheon of Samuel L. Jackson one-liners:
