But dentist Andy Fiddler (Eugene Levy), who's in Detroit for a conference, is there reading the same paper, and the dealer mistakes him for Vann and sets up the deal.

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Arrives in theaters today with a sheet over its head and a tag on its toe. So to speak. What we have here is a complete systemic failure, a comedy that's not funny, with action that's not thrilling. show more

    The screenplay has no idea how to modulate the banter between the movie's talented stars so that it approximates affectionate and playful sparring. show more
