    Vince is a terrific actor. Huge Kevin James fan as well. I don\'t recall laughing much; there was a lot of suspense.

    There is a lot more to this movie than meets the eye. If you are looking for a mindless slapstick comedy, you will be disappointed. While there are some funny scenes, there is a good, solid message about truth, honesty and friendship.
