    San Francisco Chronicle

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

    Mike Clark USA Today

    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
