    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.
  2. How lame have high-concept, no-brain comedies gotten?

    A pooped, poorly executed buddy-cop comedy with more cliches than expletives.

    While the idea may be good, its execution is awful.

    A dull afterthought and a sorry vehicle for the comic expression of Martin Lawrence.
  6. Offers two or three worthwhile laughs.

    (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.
