    This is probably Murphy's best comedic performance since "Bowfinger." The adrenaline is pumping and the outrageousness is dialed all the way up. Murphy is often funny, and occasionally hilarious. show more

    A loose, lighthearted romp that's a notch above the usual buddy comedies. show more

    Stinker doesn't begin to describe this movie's character -- both frenzied and dispiriting.
