    Lawrence goes the extreme distance to make you fall out of your chair laughing.
  2. Reviewed by: Jim Sullivan
    A rather witty, streetwise comedy/action movie with a lot going for it.
  3. It isn't particularly subtle or original. But it's a good-natured late-summer romp fueled by Lawrence's manic shtick.
  4. 50
    It's a dumb movie, but it's good for a few profoundly undemanding laughs.
  5. (Lawrence) has every right to be proud of carrying this rickety film on his stooped shoulders.
  6. Reviewed by: Cody Clark
    An empty reminder that Martin Lawrence can be pretty funny, in a spastic, loose-limbed way -- maybe next time he'll get a worthwhile script.

    (Lawrence)'s not just unfunny, he's coarsely anti-funny. The film just lurches from one dull skit to the next without bite or much of a point.

    In this movie actor Martin Lawrence starts in a made to order story of a jewel tief who returns to the scene of the crime to retrieve his loot. Only to find that the construction site where he stashed the diamon is now a police station. He gets told that the only way to get inside is being under arrested or by wearing a badge, he decides to pretend that he is detective. Expand

    It has the Martin Lawrence stamp. Nothing more. But it's ok :)
