There are some throw-up gags and constant buffoonery at the hands on these surprisingly inept professional killers.

You can see it's not exactly the most sophisticated or expensively made movie out there, but it's executed just well enough to still a good time. The movie is an almost exact copy of Belgian cult classic Man Bites Dog 1992. The visual looked awful, so bad that it looked that it was cut out of cardboard. . If you watch it as a remake of that movie, it is a great experience. Similar acting and directing work, but with a more professional camera crew.
But a positive thing that saves the whole thing from being even worse of a movie is the fact that it didn't feel repetitive, nor cheesy and it wasn't cliche.

Good, fun Arnie action movie. He really wants to kill Gunther because Gunther stole his girlfriend. Of course, the story is laced with lots of strong foul language. The script was very basic, very narrow. And at the end when the did it was just so forced, it felt like they just shoved it in there.

The jokes are of a pretty simplistic nature. Something that isn't as satisfying as it could be due to the fact that it all hangs on the main character's desire to get revenge, and he's easily the least likable person onscreen. Fortunately it's pretty short and has no pacing issues.
Which is a fresh thing and didn't do the movie any harm. The plot was very simple no twist, just right at the end, which you could have seen it coming from a mile. Be sure to sit through the credits to hear one of the funniest country-parody songs ever, curtesy of the Terminator himself. Still, the other people onscreen are just funny enough to carry the material forward until his arrival. It becomes a race against time: kill or be killed, as the hunters quickly become the prey.
The legendary action star is left to steal the show during the final act. Which is a fresh thing and didn't do the movie any harm. It's pretty silly stuff, but it works.
