  • It's too bad Martin already made “What's the Worst That Could Happen?” The title really fits this one. show more

  • Has many more downs than ups, but this ragged action comedy, with Martin Lawrence and Steve Zahn as mismatched buddies, rings some outrageously funny changes on a deadly serious genre of amateur video that began with Rodney King.

  • The film is profane. But who knew police brutality could play as a laughing matter? show more
