    We've since seen plenty of self-satisfied smart alecks, and Freddy, as written and played, brings nothing new to the party.
  2. 38
    As buddy pics go, this is pretty much not even worth a single look, let alone a double take.
  3. 30
    You get the feeling that everyone was in a good mood and the margaritas were pouring, but neither Gallo nor anybody else ever found a bottom line for this movie or its characters.
  4. 25
    I realized there was no hope for the movie because the plot and characters had alienated me beyond repair. If an audience is going to be entertained by a film, first they have to be able to stand it.
  5. This dismally strained comedy defies laughs and doesn't contain an ounce of internal logic.
  6. 25
    The often difficult-to-follow plot is sort of "Traffic" for nitwits.
  7. Another racial cartoon buddy movie that eagerly flogs its best laugh -- indeed, its only laugh -- in the trailer.
  8. 25
    If ever a film was fit only for straight-to-video release, it's this one.
  9. 20
    An ostensible action-comedy that can't seem to get either side of its genre equation right.
  10. 20
    A shell game passing as entertainment.
  11. Most of the comedy, such as it is, consists of the uppity Chase acting "street" and the ghetto-fabulous Tiffany putting on moneyed airs. But, if you've seen the trailers, you already know that.
  12. 20
    Poorly paced action comedy.
  13. 10
    Who the heck green-lit this garbage heap anyway?
  14. Reviewed by: Joe Leydon
    It's doubtful that anyone, even executors of Greene's literary estate, will be able to discern much of the source material in this frenetic trifle.
  15. Reviewed by: Tom Keogh
    It's not just bad, it's ugly. Not just stupid but really aesthetically displeasing. The sooner this movie disappears from sight, the better.
