Lawrence goes the extreme distance to make you fall out of your chair laughing.
It isn't particularly subtle or original. But it's a good-natured late-summer romp fueled by Lawrence's manic shtick.
Thinking isn't going to do anyone a bit of good during Blue Streak. Turn off your brain instead and you might enjoy it.
The buoyancy is only intermittent.
The story is stale, action uninspired, pacing lackadaisical. The whole production looks a little cut-rate, too.
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.
