    The first 20 minutes are ferociously funny, but then, for some reason, it thinks it has enough umph to be a full-fledged CIA undercover spy flick...which it doesn't.

    Takes "watchable but unspectacular" to new levels. Horribly unfunny and facile, while still managing not to be actively bad. Joel Schumacher can make classic cinema when he tries ("Falling Down"). But unfortunately, he doesn't, very often ("Batman And Robin"). Someone hit him.

    Hopkins and Rock are not a good screen mix. How that got a screen master like Hopkins to work with a comic idoit and think they actually work together is beyond me. The director couldn't decide if this was to be a real spy thriller or a Jackie Chan flic!

    A pretty decent film. Has romance, action, crime and a kick of comedy.

  1. Bad Company would just be another silly, intermittently funny, buddy comedy (Anthony Hopkins is Rock's training agent) were it not for a plot unlaughably close to current events.

    Like many of the nonpolitical terrorist-as-villain spectaculars that have been held back after Sept. 11, has the whiff of something gone stale. Though it may have sat on the shelf for a while, this project had gone bad long before it was released.

    The main problem with this whole Jerry Bruckheimer-produced mess is that they took a promising comedy setup and squandered it by trying to make a legitimate spy thriller out of it.
