  • Lawrence forgoes his knack for verbal comedy and replaces it with crude nonstop mugging. show more

  • This sometimes funny but ultimately convoluted movie would have benefited enormously from letting Lawrence loose. show more

  • This dispensable comedy has a few unexpectedly loopy surprises, including an outlandishly gay detective (played by versatile actor William Fichtner), who loves the Ice Capades but loathes insurance fraud. show more
