It wasn't a stupid movie, there was Jolie posterior :D And who could fault thekeyboard scene?

I think it could be done. If you're swinging the barrel round as you shoot, you're imparting a sideways motion that should continue after the projectile leaves the barrel (in the same way that a bomb continues to move forward after being dropped from an aircraft) so in theory I think the idea is conceivable.

My assumption was that his ammo was a sphere, otherwise you are correct.

I stated it was an OK action if you're in a silly mood.
Sort of like "Shoot 'em up" also IMO.

It would be fun watching them try to break Newton's first law of motion.

The Mythbusters actually just tested this one, and the new episode aired today. And, yes, they deemed the "Wanted" bullet curving myth busted.

EDIT: Cherynoble beat my to it
