    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Desperately unfunny action comedy. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    The star interplay and anachronisms recapture some of the surreal spirit of the Crosby-Hope Road movies, and the end-credit outtakes are funny enough to sustain that getting-hoary device for at least one more picture. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    There are three action sequences here so delightful, so hilariously deploying an old tool for a new use, that they prompt smiles long after I saw the film. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    The unlikely cowboys play off each other's strengths like the best doubles team in tennis. The exquisiteness of this match is that Chan and Wilson are both reactive comedy actors. show more

    Liam Lacey The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Actually a pretty entertaining movie, in a kick-you-in-the-pants kind of way. A relative rarity -- a solid no-brow comedy. show more
